Malaga 28 April 1803


The inclosed is Copy of the last Letter I had the Honor of addressing you under date 18 Instant.

I have now merely to acquaint you that Orders have Just been Communicated to the Governor of this Place, from the Supreme Board of Health, in Madrid, henceforward to admit all Vessels from the United States immediately on arrival, to Pratic, without Subjecting them to a Quarantine of Observation, as hitherto practised. This measure has been adopted, as the order mentions, in Consequence of a repetition of the favorable Advices from America, that the Yellow Fever has ceased, and for the general Advantage of Trade. I have the Honor to be, very Respectfully, Sir Your most obed & he. Servt.

Willm. Kirkpatrick.
