C. W. F. Dumas to John Adams: A Translation

The Hague, 26 [25] February 1782


In a letter of this same day,1 which I have already mailed, I forgot to include some essential news. President van den Santheuvel’s report made to the high mightinesses of your last requisition, was taken ad referendum on the last day of the Dutch assembly, by all cities of this province. We will see what will come of it. The states will reconvene a week from tomorrow.

In haste, Sir, your very humble and very obedient servant,


RC (Adams Papers).

1This letter clearly is dated the 26th, but no other letter of this date has been found. Dumas is presumably referring to his letter of 25 Feb., above.
