Bristol, 10 Oct. 1792. A few days ago he received from Pinckney a packet containing his commission as consul here, TJ’s letters of 4 and 31 May, and the laws passed during Congress’s last session. He is honored by his appointment and has “filled up to you” the required bond and transmitted it to Pinckney. The desirability of providing a salary adequate to the expenses and toils of the office,...
Bristol, 24 Dec. 1792 . He wrote to TJ on 10 Oct. by the Harriot , Capt. Howland, to Boston, and sent a duplicate by the Sisters , Capt. Webb, to Norfolk, but has not heard from TJ since. He encloses the “State of this Market at this time” for American produce and notes that Bristol was opened on 15 Oct. to the importation of wheat for three months, at the end of which time this privilege is...
Bristol, 31 Dec. 1792. He wrote on 24 Dec., but as the ship Charles is detained by contrary winds, he adds two newspapers. These and other accounts make it appear that England is “determined to go to war with France, an event, which should it take place, cannot, in my opinion, but be extremely injurious to both Nations—but, unfortunately for mankind in general, the Interest of the People at...
Bristol, 10 Apr. 1793 . He has not heard from TJ since sending his last letter of 31 Dec. by the Charles via New York and a duplicate by the Fabius via Philadelphia. The enclosed accounts of imports and exports in American ships here for the last half of 1792 would have been sent sooner, but he only recently learned that TJ expected them. To ensure more accurate accounts, he suggests that TJ...
Bristol, 10 June 1793 . Since his 10 Apr. letter, having heard nothing from TJ, he adds that by order in council the ports of the kingdom will continue to be open to the importation of foreign corn and flour to the end of Parliament’s present session, subject to low duties on wheat and flour. Although this is uncertain, the policy will probably be prolonged thereafter because of the scarcity...
Plymouth, 4 July 1793 . He takes this opportunity by the American ship Amsterdam Packet , Captain Weeks, bound for New York from London, to advise that two ships owned by United States citizens have been brought here and detained on the pretense that all or part of their cargoes are French property. The Eliza , Captain Worsley, bound from the Isle of France to Dunkirk and Ostend, was captured...
Bristol, 1 Sep. 1793 . He wrote from Plymouth on 4 July—but was unable to copy—an acknowledgment of TJ’s 21 Mch. letter because the ship by which he sent it, the Amsterdam Packet bound for New York, was then on the point of sailing. He went to Falmouth and found several American ships detained there on pretexts similar to those used against the Eliza and the Jay at Plymouth. He encloses a copy...
Bristol, 3 Sep. 1793 . Contrary to his 1 Sep. letter by this conveyance, in which he reported advice from Messrs. Hellicar, the most considerable corn factors here, that British ports were to have been closed to foreign wheat, they just now inform him of an announcement in the last Gazette that they will be permitted until 30 Nov. at the second low duty of six pence per quarter. This seems to...
18 March 1801, Bristol. Transmits copy of his 17 Dec. dispatch (since which he has received no letters); encloses accounts of imports and exports by American vessels during six-month period ending 31 Dec. 1800, newspapers, and a price list of London commodities. Food costs continue to rise. Shortage is now critical, and continued war will interfere with supplies from European continent....
