To his wife


August 22[, 1805]

I joined the squadron yesterday.  The combined fleet came off Cadiz the day before, and chased our ships away.  I was then in Tangier, and being informed of it by one of our frigates, which was going to Sir Richard Bickerton, I returned immediately.  I had luckily got plenty of bullocks, for ourselves and the squadron, and as much vegetables as I wanted for myself.
