24 June 1804, Lisbon. “I was honored a few days since with your favour of the 8th. of March past. The information alluded to was from a Captain, who acquainted me as a positive fact, that the Collector of the Port from which he sailed, would not allow him to take British Seamen and told him that after the first of September the Government had instructed the Collectors not to clear our Vessels...
15 March 1803, Lisbon. Notes that his previous letter was sent by the Eunice to Alexandria and enclosed copies of his correspondence with Almeida, the last semiannual list, Lisbon and Belém port charges, and his account. Since part of the charges in the account are probably not provided for by law, submits them entirely to the government’s discretion. Received “this day” a duplicate of JM’s 14...
14 April 1805, Lisbon . “Understanding the Brig Acorn, Captain Folger did not get out yesterday I shall avail myself of this Vessel to inform you that a British transport which arrived from the Streights last evenning, brings advice that on the 9th. Instant 13 French Sail of the line and 4 Frigates appeared off Cadiz, when the British blockading Squadron, consisting of 6 sail of the line and...
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...
§ From William Jarvis. 17 January 1806, Lisbon. “Not a Vessel having sailed for the United States since I had the honor to address the foregoing of the 24th. Ulto. by the Bg Truxton, Captn Mooney for Baltimore has prevented my writing since. “Prattic not being given to the American Vessels by the 27 Ult I wrote to the Marquis of Pombal on that day, reminding His Excy of His promise. All the...
Some further detention of the Brig Da Bailes affords me an opportunity of enclosing to you the fourth de cree of the first instant, the three first of which were put under cover with my Official letter by the Vessel of the 29 ulo plublished to day, levying a co ntribution of Twenty millions of Dollars on Portugal. From what I understand to day General Junot has not any new title conferred on...
The two foregoing covered two letters from Mr. Erving, and i n closed go the two which accompanied them that he desired me to send by a different conveyance. There has been considerable rumours here for several days past, as I mentioned in my last that the Emperor Napoleon had required that the ports of Portugal should be shut against the Commerce of Gt. Britain. This is however absolutely...
1 October 1801, San Sebastian. Appends a copy of a letter he wrote to JM from London. Subsequent changes reported in consulates in Europe lead him to believe Bulkeley will be removed even if political situation in Portugal does not change. Repeats desire for Lisbon post. RC ( DNA : RG 59, LAR , 1801–9, filed under “Jarvis”). 1 p.; preceded by Jarvis’s copy of his 22 Aug. 1801 letter to JM .
§ From William Jarvis. 26 May 1806, Lisbon. “I had the honor to address you the 3rd. Instant by the Brig Dido, Captn Saml Stinness via Marblehead & sent a duplicate by the ship Swift, Captn Price via New York. “The British papers since confirm the Capture of Admiral Linois. “The Alarm I mention’d in my last, as having been excited here in consequence of the Prussian Court having prohibited...
I had the honor to address you on the 22nd. Ulto. by the Brig George Captn. Taylor via Alexandria a duplicate of which goes herewith, which I have sent expecting it might reach you a few days before the original, understanding that the Vessel is a very fast sailer. Not haveing received a line from his Excellency in answer to my Communication of the 9th.; I yesterday address’d a Note to him of...
10 August 1802, Lisbon. No. 2. Forwards a duplicate of his last dispatch of 3 Aug. and part of the accompanying documents. Mentions that an American ship which arrived after a twelve-day voyage from Cadiz spotted nothing suspicious. “A letter from a private House in Cadiz” informed him that the emperor of Morocco had suspended hostilities against the U.S. for six months. “Another private...
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...
In reading over the foregoing copies, the originals of which I had the honor to address you the 20th & 24th Ultimo, I find that in my haste I have fallen into some inaccuracies of expression, which I have partly taken the liberty to rectify. I imagine that my surmise of money being the principal object of the supposed late demand was not far out of the way, or at least that it has been...
7 September 1803, Lisbon . Encloses a copy of his letter to JM sent by Captain Cook of the ship Fox . The removal of Almeida and the rumored dismissal of Rodrigo have resulted in “no obvious political consequences.” A British sloop of war that arrived in Lisbon “five or six Days ago … this morning went to Sea” after first making “a Sweep of all the Seamen they could find on Shore, among which...
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 25th. Ulto. I had the pleasure to address you by Captn. Spooner of the Schooner Nancy, via New York inclosing Letters from Messrs. Pinckney, Graham, Simpson and Leonard. Nothing worthy troubling you with till lately having since occurred, I presumed you would readily dispense with letters written merely for the Sake of writing. I have now the Honor to inform you that an affair of a very...
My last under date of the 25th. Ultimo was by the Ship Adelaide Captn. Mun via Baltimore, covering a dispatch from Mr Willis. I have now the honor to inclose you another dispatch from the same Gentleman & an extract of a letter from Mr Gavino. The latter contains all the information I have recd. since my last concerning Barbary Affairs. There is nothing here worth communicating, without in...
§ From William Jarvis. 3 December 1805, Lisbon. “The foregoing Mr Pinckney did me the favour to take charge of. He sailed the 19th. & left the inclosed letters addressed to you, to himself to your care & to his daughter⟨s⟩; to be forwarded. “In my haste I omitted to inclose a Copy of my letter to Mr de Araujo of the 6th. Ulto. relative to the quarantine, I now send it with a Copy of his...
8 April 1802, Boston. Encloses his bond [as U.S. consul at Lisbon]; his sureties are two respectable Boston merchants. Has seen letters that arrived on a vessel from Lisbon 6 Apr. reporting that the prince regent of Portugal had ordered a quarantine of up to forty days on vessels from the U.S. “A measure so distressing to our Mariners, so injurious to our Merchants & so unnecessary at such a...
Not having been honored with a letter from you since the 1st. Novr. 1805 has deterred me from addressing you since the 25 June last. I have little now to communicate beside what is in my official letter of to days date. I sincerely hope that the ideas of the President relating to roads, Canals clearing of Rivers & a plan of National education may be acted on by the Legislature. The advantages...
§ From William Jarvis. 26 September 1805, Lisbon . “The first of the foregoing went by the ship Harriot, Captn Winslow Harlow, for Baltimore with the inclosures. “The press set on foot here has already subsided here to a certain extent without many Men being impressed. “A Report has been whispered about that the Emperor Napoleon has made a farther demand on this Government of Six Million of...
Since my last every thing has been hurry & bustle here. Reports & counter reports seems to have been the order of the day. Sometimes this G ovmt. was decidedly French sometimes decidedly English & little else w as to be relied on but the exertions of the British Subjects to Secure their e ffects & quit the Country. The 12th. w as appointed for the sailing of the C onvoy, the 15th. & to-morrow,...
19 September 1803, Lisbon . “The inclosed No 123 will inform you of the arrival of the 30 Gun ship which Mr. Simpson mentioned in a copy of an extract that I forwarded some time since and of the communications I have made respecting her. My object … was to have ordered her out of Port but finding she was admitted to prattic the 16th. and dropped up the next day but that nothing had yet been...
Since the foregoing no ev ent of the smallest political im po rtance has taken place regarding thi s Country. The same veil of Mys ter y, too still continues to hide from the world the object of Lord St. Vincents vis it. Nothing is doing to the Navy. No recruists are getting for the Army. Public paper still at 19 PrCent discount, about which it has been for Six months with a small variation of...
8 October 1804, Lisbon. “The Barbary Jew mentioned in the foregoing called on me yesterday & all he could learn was, that the three frigates had orders to cruise a month before they came in here, that their object is to repair the two large ones, that the two in here came in contrary to the Admirals consent, that for so doing they made an excuse of being much out of repair, particularly the...
