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...
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...
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.

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...
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...
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...
