Letter dated London, February 5, 1802, unaddressed but probably to Nicholas Low, a prominent New York merchant and businessman. Bingham discusses a verdict in a suit against him in Massachusetts for $30,000, as well as another suit relating to the Brig Hope. He discusses other business matters and closes with stating that a temporary tranquility has taken place in Europe but will probably be of short duration. He also thinks it a good moment for a more unrestrained intercourse with the British West Indies
