I have received your Excellency's letter dated 4th January last since a few days only. I am much obliged for your attention to the Executive, of the provision of my office as Consul General of same and have received the rec't. duly authenticated joined to the letter which I have the honor to answer.
You mentioned in the same letter Sir, that you presumed Mr. Blount had (4th January last) remitted me some of the monies due from your State, to the Government of Martinique, but to this day I have received nothing, and I am sorry to have disappointed the said Government. You will oblige me much Sir, if you will be so
