From George W. Erving, 21 February 1803
London. Feby. 21st. 1803
All the Consuls have not yet transmitted their Accounts for the last half-year, that of Mr. Fox for the reasons stated in a former letter cannot yet be compleated; and as we have now no Fund for settling the ballances which may be due, I have thought it best to refer them over to the next half year, and no longer to delay sending my Consular, and Seaman Agency Account up to the 31st. of December; which together with my Account as Agent for Claims, & a List of Ships which have been reported at this Office for the last half year I have herewith the Honor to inclose, and to be with the most perfect Respect Sir Your very Obt. Servt.
George W Erving
