To his wife


[Mars, off Ferrol,] July 16 [1804]

I am told this afternoon that some misunderstanding has taken place between the Spaniards and the Americans;  which is very probable, as the Americans have got so near the kingdom of Mexico, and which they will have possession of before half this century is out.
