Franklin and John Adams to Genet
AL:4 Library of Congress
Passy, Oct. 23. [i.e., on or after October 24, 1778]5
Messrs. Franklin and Adams present their Compliments to Mr. Genet, with Thanks for communicating the Papers, which they will read and consider, and furnish him with such Notes upon them as may occur.6
4. In BF’s hand.
5. We presume BF dated this letter erroneously, for it is in response to Genet’s of the 24th to each of the commissioners.
6. They were as good as their promise; JA’s reply is printed in Taylor, Adams Papers, VII, after Oct. 24, BF or Arthur Lee’s below, under Oct. 26.
