26 August 1810, Lisbon. Acknowledges the receipt of JM’s two letters of 17 June. Is convinced of the great value of merino sheep for farming and for domestic manufacturing and has purchased two hundred sheep for his own use. Has also taken the opportunity to purchase more than a thousand sheep with the idea of serving his country by shipping them to the U.S. for sale there. His fears about the...
I had the honor to address you the 20th. Ultimo and in that letter begged that you would do me the favour to accept of a Marino Ram & Ewe. They are warranted of the best breed in Spain & a Certificate of their being such will be inclosed to Nicholas Gilman Esqr. I shall however take the liberty to inclose you the best of all vouchers, a sample of the wool I took from their backs, which I found...
Having lately, with some pains, been able to obtain a few Merino Sheep, warranted of the best breed in Spain, I hope that you will allow me the honor of presenting you with a Ram & a Ewe. I shall also take the liberty of sending a pair to Mr Jefferson. There are now two or three large vessels bound to Alexandria, in one of which I am in hopes of being able to provide them a passage. As the...
I had the honor to address you the 25th. Ulto. by the Brig Vestal of Hull, Lennant Jones, Master, acquainting you that in consequence of your instructions, I shipped on board the Brig Hetty Captn Morehouse in Octr. 1807 a pipe of port Wine say Lisbon Wine a pipe of Bucellos & a quarter Cask of port, which vessel being captured carried into England & herself with the rest of the Cargo...

Morehouse, a pipe of Bucellos Wine a pipe of Lisbon & a quarter Cask of Port agreeable to your instructions.

The inclosed of the 23rd. Decr. is a copy of the last letter I had the honor to address to you via Falmouth to the care of R. W. Fox Esqr. and I shall now take the liberty to add some remarks to the Commercial observations in it, which I perceive that I omitted. I was not sufficiently explicit as to the price of Cod-fish in Cadiz; six dollars P quintal being the price by small parcels after...
The last letters I had the honor to write to you were dated the 3rd. & 18th. Ulto:. I sent a duplicate & triplicate of the first, the dupliplicate via Liverpool & the triplicate by the way of Falmouth. The original I intended to send by the Commerce, Captn. Robbins, but he finally took a freight for the Streights. Since the date of the last, little has occurred of interest in Portugal. It is...
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...
My last dated 28th. June, which I have transmitted by a private conveyance by way of Spain, stated the situation of pu blic affairs to that date. The subsequent events have doubtless been so fully detailed in the Public Papers which have reached the U nited States, as to render any very minute account unnecessary in this. The success of the Spaniards encouraged the People in this Kingd om...
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...
