Ship-letter - HC Ship UNION - Madeira 1811

SHIP LETTER 1811 – HUTTING, P. (?). Letter to his sister Miss E. NUTTING, Hoxton Fields, Middlesex, England. With Ship letter postmark, and two postmarks of London of the 6th August 1811. H.C. SHIP UNION, at sea March 28th 1811 Latitude 35° 34’, Longitude 15° 44’ W; April 1st 1811. His ship had started on the 12th of March from the Island SAINT HELENA.
 

 

March 28th: Our intention of touching at the ISLAND OF MADEIRA has procured me the means of a conveyance to England, ‘tho our com(mod)ore as communicated to the FLEET, his wish that we do not anchor. I have not from the shortness of our passage met with any occurrence the description of which could give you pleasure. We left ST HELENS the 12th of March [Saint Helena] with a fair and pleasant breeze which a few days after, was followed by a foul one and terminated in a hard gale our ship tossed about in good glee, rising and falling with the waves in magnificient style. Ship’ing as much water as employed our pump forward on the jog. We have since leaving the land fell in with two BRIGS one from LISBON who reported to the com(mod)ore and by him communicated to the Fleet the NEWS OF THE RETREAT OF THE FRENCH ARMY OUT OF PORTUGAL and of a NUMBER OF FRENCH TRANSPORTS WITH PRISONERS HAVING SAILED FOR ENGLAND. We have now a pleasant breeze with fine weather and expect to see PORTO SANTO in a few days.
Sunday, April 1st 1811: We are now nearing the land of MADEIRA fast which is very high. The lowness of the clouds depriving us of the appearance I compute we are ten miles off it. The com(mod)ore as now made the signal not to anchor and I fear I shall lose the opportunity of a conveyance. I am in very good health ... (etc.) suppose you are at this instant at church our people are all employed triming and making sail and will be till we are to the southward of FUNCHAL so conclude with good wishes for our family ... P.S. Notwithstanding the advantage we posess in sailing nor of our being the second ship in FUNCHAL BAY the Com(mo)dore alone anchored, keeping the signal flying for the Fleet to remain under weigh, we however sent a boat on shore but did not procure any wine, we stood into within a mile and a half of the shore and then about standing from it to the distance of 4 or 5 miles, the whole of the day, when nearest the shore some PORTUGUESE BOATS came of to us having for sale oranges, figs, walnuts, vegatables. But the season of the year being winter they were not in that perfection we expected. We sent letters on shore but I while closing this lost the opportunity. We are losing the land fall thanks to a fresh breeze. So farewell...

Dear Brother –

I writ my Bro. Clarke the 2d ins(tan)t from Antwerp - & I imagined mine to you of the 16 ins(tan)t from hence, would have been my last from this side of the water – We having orders at that time to march to Williamstadt [WILLEMSTADT], upon the arrival of the transport, which came into harbour to the number of eighty three last Tuesday morning – Upon w(hi)ch we had a counter order to remaine in our cantoonment till further orders – The reason of which is that all the Hessians are to embark first – The first division of there cavalry, will be at Williamstadt tomorrow, & as they cann’t embark more then a squadron a day, it will be three weeks before they can all be aboard - & at forty horses a vessel there cavarly will take up seventy transports - & if they should embark sixty infantry on board each horse transport, then there will be vessels sufficient for our brigade – but if then we are not to go by ourselves, we must stay for more transports, or for the return of these that carry the Hessians, who it is said are to go to the North, & to bring back the Dutch forces which are there – As our stay must now be a month here if not longer should be glad to hear that all friends are well - & if any material good news that can be depended upon pray lett me know, which will a great pleasure to others as well as myself – My compliments as due - & I remaine – Dear Sir – your most affectionate humb. serv(an)t
Phil. Browne
I heartily wish many happy New Years to all friends – Please to direct as usual to this place ou ailleurs -

I received in due time, my very good friend, your kind letter of the 13th May, which gave me infinite pleasure; I love dearly to be remember’d by my old intimates, and enjoy’d the thoughts of my health being drunk at S(i)r John St. Aubyn’s by you, him, & Mrs. Munster, I beg if you see him to remember me and Mrs. Boistier to him very kindly; why does he not marry? And have a son to keep up his old baronettage? If I forget not, he had formerly no aversion to the fair, and perhaps, his celibary, like your’s, proceeds from his constancy to his younger propensities; if so, I have nothing to say. I am very glad to find by a letter from Mrs. Munstor, & by my London Chronicle of the 20th that you have suppressed your floating Republick, & that AFFAIRS IN IRELAND begin to wear a better aspect – I wish it were the same all over Europe, and that we were settled in the old way, bad as people used then to find it; I am afraid we are grown too wise, and enlighten’d to be happy, though happiness should be the rim of wisdom & knowledge, as health of eating, drinking & sleeping – HIS PRUSSIAN MAJESTY seems inclined to give the world a little more exercise, but I sincerely hope that God Almighty & his vice-gerents will keep him quiet. I do not know how you consider the fat gentleman in England but he is as much beloved here, as whilom the French King used to be in England; I think even that the aversion betwixt Austria & Prussia is more inveterate that I ever found it betwixt us and our neighbours; dog & cat-like as we were; my son, thank God, has at length left this town, and has joined his REGIMENT at ULM on the Danube, where I hope he’ll remain, this place being very unwholsome for wild boys, notwithstanding the supposed rigid discipline of the Austrian service, which they can always evade – We as yet know nothing positive of the PRELIMINARIES, nor of what will be the state of ITALY, whose inhabitants seem to have swallow’d a tolerable dose of FRENCH REPUBLICAN DRUGS, whose effect is not gentle in their warm climate – We have here a considerable number of Italians, who are far from being easy, and altho’ they heartily wish to return to their country, dare not, having little hopes of tranquillity and safety – Great numbers of French EMIGRÉS return to theirs; even persons whose circumstances are happily such that they might live comfortably where they are; me thinks, ‘twould be wiser to tarry till the decrees against them have been formally recalled, for while they are in force, they may at any time be put in execution, tho’ for the present they are allowed to slumber – Since the favour granted us, it is has been judged proper that we should emerge from our privacy; and we have been presented by S(i)r MORTON & Lady Elizabeth, and now me enrolled dans le grand monde; we are all at present smarting for it, in consequence of a magnificent fête given on the 11th by the RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR; a ball and supper in all the court; we were 350 at supper in a building erected on purpose in his fine garden, very slightly built, for it was the work of two or three days only, & during a constant rain; there were a multitude of handsome women; a whole fairy tale full of diamonds; a supper worthy Lucullus, & appetites worthy the supper; and a grand breakfast to stop all crannies at <...> o’clock in the morning, when the dancing was over – as we do not dance, we did not want breakfast & so have escaped with nothing worse than colds – I think I saw the Doctors chariots in great activity yesterday – our friend STADION was there, and desires many compliments to you, and S(i)r Ab. HUME; I beg mine may be joined – Now that we can be a little useful, should any of yours or S(i)r Abraham’s friends come, I hope you’ll give them a line for us. Adieu, my dear friend, I ever am & shall be affectionately your’s
J. W. Boissier
My wife & Maria sneeze their best love to you.

I received a few days ago your’s of the 7th May, other English received the same day letters of the 15th – I suspect the direction, I had given you was not explicit enough so beg you henceforwards to direct to me no. 1081 rue de Carinthie, Vienna – Some days before the POPE’S NUNCIO had sent me the seeds, which I immediately dispatched to COMTESSE DE PERGEN, who was in the country, & is delighted in a high degree, as she never expected so noble a provision; I am so much the more obliged to you, as we have the highest value for her & her family, from whom we receive daily marks of civility and friendship – We are here in full uncertainty of war or peace; one day we ponder upon iron and gunpowder, & the next upon olive branches and roses; the EMPEROR, I imagine, wishes for the latter, but he surely cannot fear the former, his armies being (as I am told) now in the finest order, and the disposition of his subjects excellent; his finances like those of every other power must be drained, and as he is not disposed like those REPUBLICAN CANNIBALS to supply himself by means justifiable, or un-justifiable, he will naturally avoid engage in a new, if the safety and happiness of himself & his subjects will allow it: as an Englishman I silently but ardently wish, he may determine to join with us, & contribute with the RUSSIANS, PRUSSIANS, DANES, SWEDES, SWISS and ITALIANS to curb these insatiable BLOODSUCKERS, who seem resolved never to desist while there remains within their reach a purse to plunder, & a man to make miserable. Since a fortnight we have among us PRINCE AUGUSTES, I had the honour of celebrating his father’s birthday with him last Monday, and was happy to see by his partiality to roast beef, plumbpudding, & a glass of claret, that his long abode on the Continent has not weaken’d these patriotic tastes in him; he is exceedingly liked here, & we English are not singular in wishing that his health may allow him to remain some time; he himself told me, he had not been so well for years. He has with him a countryman of your’s Mr. LIVINGSTON, well known in this place, and beloved by everyone, whom it is worth while to be beloved by; I have seen him several times, & he promises me, when the first flurry of honours is over, that he will be a frequent guest in my house. We are now upon tenter-hooks in regard to the Mediterranean as the TOULON SQUADRON ought to be at sea with the high puffed BUONAPARTE, I wish he may now be puffed so high or so low, as never to be heard of more, and I piously wish that all his fellow ARGONAUTS may partake of the same fate; no common event can open the eyes, or dispel the lethargy of these wretchedly enslaved Republicans, or change the plan of their pilfering, domineering, blood spilling demagogues; I am apt to think the ten plagues of EGYPT would have only made them laugh, & that if their waters had been turned into blood, they would have all got drunk with it – We are somewhat alarmed at the accounts of our ill success against OSTEND, but still hope that as they come from suspicious quarters that they are greatly exagerated; a few days must now inform us – Whenever you give me any orders about BARON DE LEDERER, never think of the trouble, but of the pleasure I shall find, in being of any use to my good old friend & take care that L. A. be strong in his recommendation to his brother, who is one of those cold indifferent characters, who require a monstrous deal of fuel to warm them & in a case of this nature he can do much, much, much – Ever your’s my dear friend
J. W(illia)m Boiss(ie)r
