Scope and Contents

Scope and Contents Tells of a brig from Antigua coming to Hampton Roads, the cargo of which did not amount to much— however, he is sending a dozen sweet oranges that he procured; explains that cannons were being fired in Norfolk to cover the landing of the enemy "in order to set fire to some of the houses that had before escaped flames"; the river is so full of brigs that "a vessel can scarcely pass."
