'27th - I have just had a visit from two American ship-captains, whose vessels lie here. They approached me most reverentially, gave me some fine language, and very probably took notes of me. NB: So they did. I have just read in the Dublin "Freeman's Journal", the account which these worthy skippers gave of their interview. Bothwell, V.D.L., 12 August 1850.'
