From John Gavino, 16 December 1802
Gibraltar 16t. Decembr. 1802
The inclosed Dispatches have just come to hand by a British frigate from Malta where Mr: Cathcart was with Comodor Morris, from whom I have Letters to the 1st: Inst.
By a Vessel just arrived from Mahon I find one of our frigates was there refitting having met some Damages in her Masts. They do not know her Name or the Capns: it can be no other than the New York. I have the honor to be Sir Your obedt. & he. Servt.
P.S. I have just ⟨r⟩ecd. a Letter from a friend at Mahon dated ⟨3⟩0. Ulto. tells me the New York arrived there the 24t. in 4 days from Algier Nothing new.
