September 1782, First Fortnight
LIVORNO, July 19. The vessel, Grand Cobenzl, Captain Baur, Hungarian by nationality, with 22 cannon & a numerous crew, has just arrived in this port. He will undertake a voyage to the north west of America, and from thence by Canton in China will return to Trieste. This is a new proof that Austrian shipping is profiting from the present war to extend its commerce to all parts of the world.
