country, where he had refuted

tally unable to command any re

hope was then ac an Cnd ; and
we certainly had never contem

Extra,! of a letter from the Secre
tary of slate to Mr. Cat heart,
dtied 2211 August, 1802.
According to information
given by Mr. Eaton, he has pre
vailed on the broiher of the ba
lhaw of Tripoli to repair to
Malta, with a view to be with
our Iquadrun before Tripoli, and
to be made use of against the
Bafhaw. At this distance, it is
difficult to judge accurately of
the projett, or to give particular
ioftrudions for the management
o. it. Although it does not ac
coid with the general (cntimcnts,
or views of the United States,
to intermeddle with the domes
tic controversies of other coun
tries, it cannot be unfair in the
prolccution of a just war, or the
iccomplilhmcnt of a reasonable
peace, to take advantage of the
lollile co-operation of others.
