Last letter from JS dated 17 August; none came by the Apollo frigate, a packet was due to sail that evening. Apparently Packets were refusing to sail over a pay dispute. RHS wrote to Uncle but did not mention Ld.Boringdon about getting attached to the Mission so he could be employed as a Sec. of Legation. RHS would check with Mr.H. - for approval. No Prayer Book or Bible had come from JHS, or the ream of Letter Paper from JS. Various local reports & from Corsica about battles in Portugal & changes in Bonaparte's Continental System. some of whose Kings were to dance the Hays-Joseph into Italy, Murat into Portugal, Ferdinand V11 to marry an arch duchess of Austria & into Spain Massena & Lord W. would not attack each other & the Lisbon merchants were confident. Curious that England was the refuge of Bourbons & Bonapartes. Brother Louis of Holland would be glad to be there, he had much in English funds. Mr.H. said there was little chance in the Mission & that Ld.Amherst would quit Sicily & vacancies would occur there. JS could consult Mr. Cockburn or Broughton about getting RHS's name on the Diplomatic List.
