Lynhaven 23d. July 1807.
All today as last night, nothing new. The Tenders said to get supplies at the Wash Woods. I think it probable that the Triumph is sharing the provision taken from on board the Medway & others without the Capes; as they have been alongside each other ever since her veture into Port.
Commodore De Catur is now on Board my Boat here; & tells me he is coming to you at Washington immediately: We are just going out to examine this Interesting harbour.
I have the honor to be Dr Sir Yrs. &c—
