“Teignmouth, Nov. 2nd, 1807.

“. . . Altho’ I understand that Ld. Wellesley claims all the glory of the Copenhagen expedition, I think Ld. Chatham’s negative will prevail over his positive qualities, and that he will be the minister of next year. Archd. Hamilton writes to me that Melville is more than ever Minister de facto in Scotland, and that a year’s fasting has so sharpened the appetites of his followers, that not a chaise is to be got on any of the roads which lead to Dunira, so numerous are the solicitors and expectants that attend his court.

“Dartmouth harbour—a beautiful basin—exhibits a curious spectacle at present. The flags of Portugal and Denmark flying on board at least twelve or fourteen detained ships of both nations, the crews of which are maintained by Govt. . . . I am now an inhabitant of New Burlington Street, but a letter directed London will be sure to find me.”
