§ From James Maury
20 April 1805, Liverpool. “I had the honor of writing to you on the 14th ulto. Since the date of the inclosed price current [not found] cotton has continued declining, in consequence of the unusually great importations from the United States. You also have the copy of a bill [not found] brought into parliament by a member of Administration, which I expect will pass into a law.”
