New Orleans March 18. 1806.
I enclose you a copy of a letter which I yesterday received from the Governor General of Cuba, from which it would seem that the Spanish Government did not expect, speedily, to adjust, with the United States, the Limits of Louisiana. I have the honor to be, Sir, very respectfully, Your hble Servt.
