Tripoli. When war was declared by Tripoli against the United States he was sent as Consul to Leghorn where he remained several years, spending about nine years in these different places. He returned to the United States in 1805. In 1807 he was appointed Consul to Madeira where he remained nine years when he returned to Washington, D. C., and soon after went as Consul to Cadiz where he remained nearly three years and was next employed as United States agent in Louisiana, and from 1823 to 1843 was employed in the Second Comptroller's office, Wash ington, D. C. So faithful to his country and family, he never took a summer vacation till the year he died, passing away Oct. 6, 1843. After spending their lives in three quarters of the globe his devoted companion followed him to their blessed home in less than four months.
