20 March 1801, Bordeaux. Encloses correspondence of his agent M. Pelletreau at Rochefort on sailors tried and sentenced there to twenty-four years in chains; adds copies of protests and his letter to naval minister on the subject and reply. Unlike ships of other nations, American vessels neither come to consular office on arrival, deposit ship’s papers there, nor report clearance on departure....
I have not had an opportunity of addressing you since the Portland sailed from here in December. With reference to some of the particulars of the letter I had then the honour of addressing you—I beg leave now to Submit to your perusal the Correspondence herewith, (No. 1), of my Agent, Mr. Pelletreau, at Rochefort, on the subject of the unfortunate Sailors tried there and condemned to twenty...
My last respects were of the 12 & 18th. March. I was honoured on the 18th. Ulto., with your Letter of the 3d. March with my commission as confirmed by the Senate, which, as events have turned, I hope fixes me here and may be a means of satisfying the wishes of my friend Mr. John Mitchell lately appointed by our Envoys to the Commercial agency at Havre. I forward the new Bond as required, by...
2 June 1801, Bordeaux. Refers JM to enclosures in his 20 Mar. letter related to sentencing of three U.S. sailors to twenty-four years in chains. Reports sentence has been upheld; encloses copy of letter from minister of marine [not found]. Suggests matter must be negotiated by future U.S. minister to France. Sentence has not been executed yet; men remain in prison. In duplicate of previous...
Refering to my last respects of 20th of March, by the ship Benjn. Franklin from Havre. I have the honour to adress you a statement of occurences since that time in whatever relates to the Commerce & interests of our Country. My former inclosures (No. 1), related to the situation of three American sailors condemned to twenty four Years chains. I am sorry to say that this sentence has since been...
13 June 1801, Bordeaux. Transmits duplicate of 2 June letter. Reports that nearly all seamen mentioned therein have since obtained passages or employment, five on a vessel at Ile de Ré, nine at Le Havre. Exception is Capt. John Percevele of Barnstable, Massachusetts, because of age and infirmity, to whom Barnet’s agent at La Rochelle gave money; no American captain would give him passage. Has...
Since I had the honour of addressing you on the 2d. inst. of which I inclose duplicates—nearly all the seamen mentioned, have obtained passages or employment in wages. Five have been engaged for a Vessell at the Isle of Rhé and nine for one at Havre—so that I have advanced but very little money for their relief, which some of them may perhaps have it their power to refund them. I must however...
30 June 1801, Bordeaux. Transmits duplicate of last dispatch with packet from Cathalan. Decision of minister of marine on seamen at Rochefort and Saumur still unknown. Three at Rochefort deserted from the Eagle , and report of one seaman is enclosed. Has received no reply from Murray on the Lloyd family, whom he continues to support. Local commissary has referred Burley case to ministers of...
5 August 1801, Bordeaux. Transmits letters from Murray and Dawson about exchange of ratifications. Hopes enclosed copies of his correspondence on the Burley affair will justify his actions. Also sends statement “concerning a momentary difficulty with a Mr. Andrews.” Believes these details will show necessity of defining consular rank, duties, and powers. Is preparing statement of vessels in...
I hasten to transmit to you the inclosed Letters just received from Messrs. Murray and Dawson who give me under date of the 31. July, the pleasing information of the exchange of Ratifications. A vessel being to sail, (say the Captains going down early in the morning) for Charleston, I improve the opportunity rather than wait some days for a Vessel bound more Northerly. I have likewise the...
