To Thomas Jefferson from James Maury, 7 September 1793

From James Maury

Liverpool, 7 Sep. 1793. He encloses a price current. On 3 Sep. the Sisters, Captain William Provoost, bound from New York to Le Havre, was brought here under suspicion of carrying French property—the fourth American ship brought here on that pretext. The courts have not determined the fate of any of their cargoes, though the ships Aerial of Philadelphia and George of Baltimore have been restored.

RC (DNA: RG 59, CD); 1 p.; at foot of text: “The Secretary of State to the United States Philadelphia”; endorsed by TJ as received 22 Nov. 1793 and so recorded in SJL. A missing duplicate is recorded in SJL as received 28 Nov. 1793. Enclosure: Price current of American produce at Liverpool, 6 Sep. 1793, with subjoined extracts from Lloyd’s list of quotations for stock, exchange with Paris, and gold and silver, 3 Sep. 1793 (printed form in same; signed by Maury, with date, prices, and comments entered in a clerk’s hand).

This is the last consular letter TJ received from Maury. See Appendix i.
