From Thomas Auldjo, 2 November 1805 (Abstract)

§ From Thomas Auldjo. 2 November 1805, Cowes. “I had the honor to write to you yesterday & have now to convey Copy of letter from Ld. Mulgrave Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs as transmitted me by Mr. Monroe relative to the blockades of Cadiz & St. Lucar.”1

RC and enclosure (DNA: RG 59, CD, Southampton, vol. 1). RC 1 p.; docketed by Wagner, with his note: “Relaxation of the blockade of Cadiz & St. Lucar.” For enclosure, see n. 1.

1The enclosure (1 p.; docketed by Wagner as received in Auldjo’s 1 Nov. 1805 dispatch) is a copy of Lord Mulgrave’s 27 Oct. 1805 letter to James Monroe (printed in the 17 Dec. 1805 New-York Commercial Advertiser) stating that the blockades of Cádiz and Sanlúcar de Barrameda had been eased, and neutral vessels could now enter and leave those ports provided they were not carrying any warlike articles or naval stores beyond what the ship itself needed.
