I had the honor to write to you on the 17th. April from England, mentioning my intention of returning immediately to Madrid by way of Lisbon; pursuant to which I left London on the 5th. May, arrived here on the 2nd. Inst., and on the 6th. proceeded to Aranjuez, where the Court now is, & from whence I returned to this place on the 14th. In my first interview with Dn. Pedro Cevallos, which took...
The last letter which I had the honor to write to you was dated 17th. June, and inclosed copies of Don Pedro Cevallos’s note of the 2d. & my reply of the 15th. He has thought proper to retouch the subjects of that note in another of the 24th. June, a copy of which & my answer of the 1st. Instt. are herewith transmitted. As Mr. Cevallos in his last note has not attempted by any argument to...
As your instructions were that the correspondence respecting D’Yrujo shoud be laid before this government without comment, I was a little doubtful whether or not you woud approve of any answer being given to such observations as it might Excite on the part of Mr. Cevallos; but under the impressions mentioned in my public letter, it seemed upon the whole that some reply shoud be made; this I...
I wrote you last on the 13th. Inst. & on the 22nd. had the honor to receive your letter of May 1st. Pursuant to your instructions of November 1st. 1805, I have scrupulously avoided conferring with the Members of this Government upon any of the subjects of the late negotiation, & when I left Madrid in February, gave conformable instructions to Mr. Young: these I afterwards confirmed in a letter...
Tho I do not generally receive private information without some distrust, yet when I have it thro channels which I cannot suspect of any sinister view in giving it, & it appears to be of any importance, or to have any bearing upon our affairs; I deem it my duty to communicate it. What I have said respecting the war with Portugal in the public letter which accompanies this, & in my last private...
I had the honor to address you last on the 25th. of July. In that letter I mentioned that no complaints had reached me from the Ports, but what related to Quarantine; but it was scarcely dispatched when I was informed through Mr. Young of these recent Captures & Condemnations at Algeciras. These are: The Felicity, Wm. Boyd, Master The Cataline, George Dowdell The Molly, Benjn. Shattucks. The...
Since my last unofficial letter (dated 28. Ulto) the Expectations of peace between England & France have been rendered, & now prevail in a much stronger degree than before. A few days since it was believed that the preliminaries had been signed by Lord Yarmouth; that report proves to have been premature, but no doubt is entertained that he has full powers to arrange, & sign preliminaries. In...
A Courier arrived here last Night to the French charge d’affaires who brings news to the 5th Inst: Contrary to all Reasonable Expectation the peace between England & France is arranged. Telegraphick news had reached Paris from Calais that Lord Lauderdale had landed who is sent on the part of Great Britain to begin the preliminaries. I am Dear Sir, with true respect & very faithy your obliged &...
I have to add to what is contained in my letter of the 13th (sent by quadruplicate) that a courier has arrived this Evening from Paris who brings letters to the 9th. Inst. That which I have seen is to Mr V. the French charge d’affaires, but not from his government. Lord Lauderdale has arrived at Paris; the letter insinuates that the peace arrangements Go on rather heavily; it is not particular...
This government has received from Lisbon intelligence of an highly interesting & important nature, the circumstances of which as stated by the Prince of Peace to several foreign ministers, & to myself in an interview which I had with him yesterday, I do not delay communicating to you. On the 4th. Inst. Lord St. Vincents commanding the English fleet off Brest received the orders of his...
