I was honor’d with your several favors of 15th. and 17th . Currt. in due course of Post, and should earlier have acknowledged the receipt of them, if at same time I could have had the pleasure to communicate any intelligence that might be useful or interesting. I have now to acquaint you that your Baggage arriv’d here only this day; having been detain’d, as I suppose, by the strong westerly...
I have the honor to acquaint you that I arrived in this Port yesterday, which compleated thirty-four days from the time of my departure from the Delaware. The Ship waits here for orders from London, therefore I intend to set out for that metropolis, by land, to morrow. At this extreme corner of the Kingdom, I find very little authentic intelligence respecting public affairs. It is reported and...
Cape François, 21 Jan. 1792 . He regrets to report that the flattering prospect of a return to tranquillity in the Northern District “has been recently obscured by unexpected depredations of the Insurgents.” For the past fortnight “those remorseless Savages” have amused themselves by burning the ripe cane fields in that area. This has revived melancholy memories of the conflagration that...
The Letter which I have the honor to hand you herewith is of an ancient date from Messieurs Havd. LeMesurier & Co., late of Havre de Grace. When I took my departure from that City in the month of September ulto., I expected to have presented you my personal respects in December or January then next ensuing; but the deranged and very unfortunate situation of both public and private affairs in...
Since I did myself the honor to write you from hence under date 4th. current, affaires have remain’d in pretty much the same state throughout the northern district of this Colony; I mean with respect to the ravages of the Insurgents. The southern and western Districts have been obliged to take copious draughts from the cup of bitterness. Should I attempt to recite the melancholly accounts...
A Flute belonging to the French Government, which was dispatch’d from hence for Philadelphia the beginning of last week, is wreck’d and totally lost on the Reef called Le mouchoir quarré. I am given to understand that all the Letters which were aboard her are lost, and therefore take the liberty of saluting you with the foregoing Copy of what I wrote you by that opportunity. The account of the...
Cape François, 24 Jan. 1792 . His last was the 21st current. This city was alarmed between 7 and 9 o’clock in the evening of the 22d by a cannonade from the batteries of Petit Ance and the plantation of St. Michel, occasioned, it is said, “by the appearance of a considerable Body of the Brigands who had the temerity to approach St. Michel apparently with the intention of attempting to burn it...
From the date of this Letter, compared with the time of my departure from Philadelphia, you might possibly imagine I had visited the place of my destination, and was thus far on my return: no such thing. I conceived the object of my mission to be of so much importance, that I was loth to expose myself and the dispatches with which I was entrusted to the probability of being intercepted and...
Under the 19th. Feby. ulto. I took the liberty of communicating to you some of the reflections excited in my mind by the critical and alarm-state of the political relation between the United States of America and France. The vessel which conveyed the original of that Letter was conducted into England; but I hope that a duplicate, which went by a Mr. Lee , whose arrival in America I have heard...
I took the liberty to write you under the 29th. ulto. mentioning the disagreable intelligence that had recently been received from Port-au-Prince. The fears I then had that new mischief would speedily ensue, have proved but too justly founded. A terrible affray has taken place at Port-au-Prince between the Mulattoes and whites wherein many lives were sacrificed. Fire was set to the Town in...
