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...

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...
