I had the honor in my last private letter to acquaint you with my having shipped on board the Brig Betty of New York Captn. Morehouse, a pipe of Bucellos Wine a pipe of Lisbon & a quarter Cask of Port agreeable to your instructions. This vessel Sailed the early part of March last, was captured off the mouth of the Tagus, sent to England & there condemned vessel & Cargo, with the sole exception...
It is a common observation that the present is a time of Political Phenomena. The extraordinary events which have occurred within the last thirty years, on both sides of the Atlantick, will without doubt amply justify the assertion: but the United States has been the only Country during this period, and unhappily for mankind almost any other where the good of the people has been the sole seed...
The inclosed of the 23rd. Decr. is a copy of the last letter I had the honor to address to you via Falmouth to the care of R. W. Fox Esqr. and I shall now take the liberty to add some remarks to the Commercial observations in it, which I perceive that I omitted. I was not sufficiently explicit as to the price of Cod-fish in Cadiz; six dollars P quintal being the price by small parcels after...
The last letters I had the honor to write to you were dated the 3rd. & 18th. Ulto:. I sent a duplicate & triplicate of the first, the dupliplicate via Liverpool & the triplicate by the way of Falmouth. The original I intended to send by the Commerce, Captn. Robbins, but he finally took a freight for the Streights. Since the date of the last, little has occurred of interest in Portugal. It is...
The foregoing is a copy of my last via Liverpool. This will be sent to the care of Mr. Fox, our Consul at Falmouth. There is no news whatever from Spain, nor military from any other quarter. The Presidents answer to the Town of Boston was elegant & wise. The Law authorising him to raise the embargo, it appears to me points out the only circumstance which will authorise its being rais ed. I saw...
My last dated 28th. June, which I have transmitted by a private conveyance by way of Spain, stated the situation of pu blic affairs to that date. The subsequent events have doubtless been so fully detailed in the Public Papers which have reached the U nited States, as to render any very minute account unnecessary in this. The success of the Spaniards encouraged the People in this Kingd om...
The foregoing is a copy of my last, which I hope will reach yo u by a vessel going from Spain. Th is I forward by a Gentleman going to the south of Spain who may have some opportunity of sending it. Here the situation daily grows more critical. The french Govmt. themselves seem to be alarmed. Within four days part of the troops have been taken from the for ts to increase the guards in the City...
The last letter which I had the honor to address to you of the date of the 18th. April went via London & inclosed a letter from Mr. Erving. This gentleman by letter & Mr. Young in person will doubtless communicate to you that the Spanish Kings Charles & Ferdinand & the royal family, in general have abdicated the Crown of Spain in favour of the Emperor Napoleon, and of all the particulars...
The inclosed letter is a copy of my last respects of the 1st. Ulto. which went by the Brig Hetty Captn Morehouse to the care of Mr He t ter. Nothing material has occurred in Portugal since that time. Flour & grain is of course daily growing more Scarce & more dear, but it is hoped that with about Sixteen thousand barrels of flour which this Govmt have bought in St. Lucar & Cadiz, that there...
Notwithstanding the advice of the very extraordinary change w hich has recently taken place i n the fortunes of the Prince of Peace will probably reach you th rough various other channels I c ould not deprive myself of the opportunity of the Brig Maria, to communicate such reports as ha ve reached here & Cadiz on the su bject. It is said that about ei
