From William Vans Murray
Paris 24 june 1801.
From a conversation which I had to day with one of the French Plenipotentiaries I believe that neither they nor their Government will consent to the unconditional suppression of the Second Article.
To morrow I shall see two of the three together & if possible Mr. Talleyrand also.
I send this by post to Havre in the hope it may reach Captn. Rodgers before he sails.1 I have the honour to be with great respect Sir yr. most obt. servant &c &c
W V Murray.
