To James Madison from John Gavino, 17 October 1802 (Abstract)

§ From John Gavino

17 October 1802, Gibraltar. No. 100. Refers to his last dispatch, no. 99 of 3 Oct.1 “I now agreeable to Consul OBrien of Algiers desire anex you Copy of his Letter to me 2d. Ulto: received this day.”2 A pass and consular certificates have arrived from the emperor of Morocco for the ship he claims, but the vessel cannot sail as sixteen crew members deserted a few days ago and went to Tangier.3 The Adams still cruises at the entrance of the bay. Has heard nothing of Commodore Morris since he left Málaga with the convoy. Simpson writes that all is well. The British squadron that left Gibraltar was sighted off Cape Palos heading east.
