Son Excellence l’Ambassadeur Extraordinaire et Ministre Plénipotentiaire de la Cour d'Angleterre, qui est l'Amie la plus affectionnée et la plus particulière de la Sublime Porte, le très-distingué Lord Strangford, Notre Ami, residant à Constantinople, ayant fait instance, en qualité de Médiateur, au Nom de Sa Majesté le Roi de Sardaigne, que La Sublime Porte, qui vient de conclure un Traité avec la Cour de Sardaigne pour lier, pour la première fois, amitié entre elles, veuille bien accorder aux Bâtimens Marchands Sardes la pero mission de faire le Commerce de la Mer Noire; et vû, qu'à l'esception des Puissances connues d'être autorisées, en vertu des Traités, à se rendre par l'embouchure de la Mer Noire aux Echelles de la Russie,-la même permission accordée par le passé, par le Gouvernement Ottoman aus Bâtimens Marchands de quelques autres Paissances Amies, produit des avantages aux deux parties, il a plu à La Sublime Porte d'accorder aux Bâtimens Marchands Sardes la permission de naviguer dans la Mer Noire, et cela à commencer du jour que, par la Grâce du Très-Haut, l'échange des Ratifications aura lieu.

C'est pour en informer M. l'Ambassadeur Notre Ami, ainsi que pour lui renouveler les assurances de l'estime et de la considera ties que nous avons pour Sa Personne, que la présente Note Officielle a été rédigée, et lui est remise, ce 20 Safer, 1239.—(25 Octobre, 1833.
