Confirming in every respect the Contents of what I had the ⟨ho⟩nor of addressing you on the 19th. instant via England the object of the present will ⟨be⟩ to hand you the Madrid Gazette by which you will be informed of the fate of the ⟨ro⟩yal family of this Kingdom. We have these some days past a large ⟨con⟩voy with Troops off this Port, Fourteen Ships of the line, a number of Frigates ⟨   ⟩ Brigs. I am afraid that they will make some attempt against this City & Bay, and without further to add, I remain with due respect & veneration Sir Your most obedient hble Servant
