§ From William Savage
19 December 1801, Kingston, Jamaica. Has had no further news regarding arrival of French troops since his last. Americans who have been impressed are being discharged almost daily, but many are still held for want of papers. Will obtain their names and places of residence of their families and transmit them to JM. Those discharged have been clad only in “a Frock Trowsers & Hatt” and must be provided with clothes.
