I beg leave to enclose with this triplicate of No. 143. Little interesting or worthy of troubling you with, has of late occured in this Country.

No: 141 dated 16th. and No: 142 the 18th. July, were forwarded by way of Cadiz and Gibraltar.

I beg to accompany this with duplicates of Nos. 138 & 139. In the latter I ventured to intimate that His Majesty had to appearance listened perhaps too readily to reports on the destination of the French Armies in Spain. I may now add such has since been verified, for considerable detachments of Troops have been put in motion all over the Empire. Had not the recent events in Spain shewn...
You will ’ere this can reach, Know of the French Army approaching the opposite Coast of Spain. Their Enemies have induced Mulley Soliman to believe that his Country is in danger. The Camp before Ceuta which has long been permanent, tho’ composed of but a few Troops, is about to be considerably reinforced. His Majesty arrived a few days ago at Fez from Morocco. Report says he will soon be at...
The very increased danger to Navigation, induced me to seek for a more probable safe conveyance for No. 136 at Mogadore, than Ships sailing from either Gibraltar or any Port of Spain seemed to offer, but as there had not any Vessel arrived in the present year, destined for America, Mr Renshaw has sent it back. I now forward it, together with this, under the charge of Mr Hendrick Van Duym, late...

No. 133 forwarded by way of Cadiz handed a statement of the late extra Disbursements in this Consulate, on the occasion of His Majestys intended visit to Tangier.

I have not heard of any intelligence on this interesting matter having...
