To Colonel Dirom concerning The Mars


Mars, off Ferrol, June 5 [1804]

I have at last got to my ship, which is a fine one, but sails very ill. However, I hope the Admiralty will allow her to be docked by a lit I bye, and then she may sail better. The French have five sail or the line here and one frigate, a Dutch one; but all in such order, that I suppose they will never come out while we have two ships to oppose them.
