The two last letters from you were of the 8th. and 25th. of January. The inquietude indicated by the Emperor of Morocco, is a circumstance unexpected, and particularly unpleasant at the present juncture. Altho’ his naval force is so feeble, the position of his harbours, the use that might be made of them, by enemies on the Coast of Barbary, and the influence of his example on Algiers and...
Since my last which was of april 20th. and went by the Adams Frigate, I have received your favors of May 13. and June 5th. & 14th. which arrived in the Essex Frigate. It affords pleasure that the Emperor of Morocco has withdrawn his inadmissible request of passports for vessels freighted with supplies of wheat for Tripoli. In refusing to sanction such a communication with Tripoli as well as to...
Your two letters of June 17. & 26 have been duly received. The hostile result of the deliberations of the Emperor of Morocco, notwithstanding your endeavor to give them a more favorable turn, is made particularly unwelcome by the moment at which it has occurred. All that remains now is to meet it in a proper manner by opposing force to force, without losing sight of the interest we have, in...
My last which was of Augt 22d acknowledged your two Letters of June 17th and 26. Those since received are of Augt. 12th inclosing the Letter to you from the Emperors Minister and of Sept 3d inclosing your answer to that letter. Your return to your Consular station under the circumstances which led to it, is entirely approved by the President. It was proper both as it secured a temporary state...
Since my letter of the 22d of August, I wrote you one dated in October, supposed to be on the 21st but of which no copy is now found in the office: I therefore request you to return me a copy of it. I have now to acknowledge the rece[i]pt of your numbers from 47 to 52 both inclusive. All your Bills have been honored as they appeared: and on the 9th of November last Messr[s] Bird, Savage & Bird...
I acknowledge the receipt of your letters from No. 56 to No. 60, both inclusive. By this conveyance of the Schooner Citizen you will receive the so long expected gun carriages. From the pains which have been taken in getting them ready, it is hoped that they will prove an acceptable present to the Emperor, and you will not fail to make use of the occasion to confirm him in sentiments most...
Since my last (of the 31st. ult.) I have recd. from Mr. Gavino, a copy of Capt. Bainbridge’s letter to you, of the 29th. of August last, in which he relates the capture of the Imperial Cruiser Mesboha, and the recapture of her American prize the Celia of Boston. Notwithstanding the prefidy [ sic ] with which hostilities have been thus commenced by the Emperor, as it is important that the...
I have received your letters numbered from 63 to 69 both inclusive. My last was of the 31st of Octr. continued to the 10th of Novr., the original of which was forwarded by the Schooner Citizen, which carried the gun carriages to the Emperor: but as she was to touch at L’Orient in order to land the ratification of the Treaty respecting Louisiana, she may not perhaps reach Tangier before this....
I have received your letters up to and including No. 76. On receiving information of the loss of the Philadelphia, the enclosed act was passed by Congress, whereby a million of Dollars was appropriated to enable the President to impart such vigor to the conduct of the war, as might at once change the exultation of the enemy in his casual fortune into a more proper sentiment of fear and prepare...
Having since the commencement of the present year accepted & paid your bills to the amount of near Eight thousand dollars, it becomes necessary to repeat my desire that you would make out your accounts and transmit them for settlement at the Treasury. This intimation is not suggested by any diminution of confidence in the fidelity with which the monies drawn are applied to the public service,...
I have received your communications respecting the wreck of the Brig Indefatigable on the Atlantic coast of Morocco and the capture of the people belonging to her by the Arabs, who offer them for a ransom. It seems very questionable, whether this vessel was really American, though there appears less reason to doubt that most of the people are citizens of the U. States; and considering that...
