From Sylvanus Bourne, 25 July 1802

Amsterdam July 25 1802


This will serve to inclose the two latest Leyden Gazettes & to confirm my decision of embarking in course of 10 days for the U States with Mrs B as the most probable means under God of restoring her health (bodily & mental).

Craving the kind indulgence of Govt. for my absence I shall endeavour to make it as short as possible while in the interim I have made every proper arrangment for the affairs of the Consulate. With the greatest Respect & Esteem I am yr Ob Servt.

S Bourne

My house here will continue send you the L.G.
