To James Madison from John Gavino, 8 March 1803 (Abstract)

§ From John Gavino

8 March 1803, Gibraltar. No. 116. Refers to his last dispatch, no. 115 of 27 Feb. Swedish consul Wyk received an eleven-gun salute on his arrival at Tangier. “The King of Sweden has made him a Nobleman of the order of Wasaw [Vasa], and the Swedish Adl. has orders to go to Tangier to Enstal him.” Crews expected from Tetuán for the ship at Gibraltar have not yet arrived. Encloses a copy of a letter received yesterday from O’Brien “dated 2d: february and down to 21st.”1 Adds in a postscript that Dutch admiral de Winter passed Gibraltar “a few days ago with two Sail of the Line” bound for Amsterdam.
