From George W. Erving, 29 October 1803

American Consulate London October 29th. 1803


I duly received from Mr: Le Couteulx the papers respecting his Claim on this Government, referred to in your letter to our Minister Resident here of May 16th. Upon this subject, I as the Agent of Mr: Le Couteulx, drew a memorial (of which I have the honor herewith to inclose a Copy) to the King in Council, & submitted it to the Minister for his approbation. This appeared to be the most eligible mode of proceedure; The memorial has been presented, but it may probably be some time before it comes under consideration. I shall not cease to attend to Mr: Le Couteulx Interest, and regularly to inform him of my Proceedings. I have the honor to be Sir With the most perfect Respect, Your very Obedt. Servant

George W Erving
