You will receive herewith Duplicate Copies of Authentic Documents in relation to Ludwig Fritz and Frederick Porter junr, two Impressed American seamen; who are stated to be detained in His Britannic Majesty’s Ship of War the Cambrian. As this vessel is supposed to be still on the Halifax station, I must ask the favor of you to interpose with the Officer commanding her to discharge those men, their Citizenship being fully proved by the Enclosures. I have the Honor to be with very great Respect, Sir, Your Mo: Obed. Servt.
