Scope and content

Letter from Alessandro Malaspina to Higgins confirming that the expedition left Valparaíso on 14 April and that all scientific operations have been concluded satisfactorily. The letter notes that their departure has been delayed so that the Pineda brothers and Haencke (more commonly spelled Haenke) can carry out mineralogical research in the mercury mine and so that new fishing methods can be tried. Dated 1790 April 27 from Puerto de Coquimbo.
