§ From William Riggin

2 March 1804, Baltimore. “On the 14th. January I had the honour to communicate to you my intention of returning to Trieste by the first convenient opportunity. Here is now a vessel loading for that place direct to sail in 6 or 7 days, on board of which I purpose taking my passage and come now to solicit the instructions you were pleased to say should be forwarded to me as soon as I was ready to embark.”
