Your letter of May 31. is but recently recieved. I had learnt with pleasure your safe arrival in the US. since it had pleased the potent Dey to break with us, to his disadvantage, to ours, & whether to yours or not you can best judge. mrs Lear at least must be glad to be once more among friends.

My last letter which was of the 6th day of August, acknowledged your letter of May, 1806, since which none have been received from you, not even the periodical state of your accounts enjoined by law. I cannot but suppose that many, during so long an interval, must have been written. The miscarriage of them however, has left us very inconveniently in the dark with respect to our affairs under...
