Extract of a letter from the honorable David M. Erskine, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of His Britannic Majesty, to the Secretary of State of the United States.

I have the honor to inform you that His Majesty has judged it expedient to re-establish the most rigorous blockade at the entrances of the rivers Ems, Weser, and Elbe, inclusive, in consequence of the present position of the enemy upon the continent, which enables him to command the navigation of those rivers.
