Notes on Officer
Orders from Nelson The dispatches and letters of vice admiral Horatio Nelson


Victory, at Sea, 19th March, 1804.

You are hereby required and directed to proceed immediately with his Majesty's Sloop La Sophie under your command to Rendezvous No. 97, under Cape St. Sebastians, where you will find his Majesty's Ship Juno, and on doing so, you will deliver my most secret letter, which accompanies this, to Captain Richardson ; but should you not fall in with the Juno after cruizing on the above Rendezvous with the utmost activity for the space of forty-eight hours, you are to proceed to Gibraltar, and deliver the whole of my Public dispatches, which you will herewith receive, to Commissioner Otway at that place. After having so done, you will remain at Gibraltar forty-eight hours for such dispatches as Lieu- tenant-General Sir Thomas Trigge and Commissioner Olway may have to send to me, and afterwards proceed, without loss of time, to Rendezvous No. 97, where you will find me, or orders for your further proceedings. In the event of your falling in with a Spanish Fleet or Squadron, either in your way to Gibraltar, or on your return, you are to be very careful in not approaching too near them, and instantly return to me with an account thereof on the above Rendezvous, No. 97. You are to receive Captain Whitby, late of the Belleisle, his servant, baggage, &c., with any other person he may have to take'with him, and give them a passage to Gibraltar, victualling them, on a supernumerary list, the same as your Sloop's Company during their continuance on board.

Nelson And Bronte.
