Translation.

Lambe is arrived: he brings new full Power to us from Congress to appoint Persons to negotiate with the Barbary States but we are to sign the Treaties. Lambe has not even a recommendation from them to us but it seems clear that he wuld be approved by them. I told him of Mr Barclay’s appointment to Morroco and proposed Algiers to him. He agreed. A small alteration in the form of our despatches will be necessary and of course another courier shall be dispatched to you on the return of Colonel Franks for your pleasure herein.
