To John Ross
Copy: Library of Congress
Passy, March 19. 1780.
I received yours (without Date) in which you mention a Desire that the alliance could come off Nourmautier to take in the Cloth.2 I have written to Captain Jones to do it if practicable.3 Perhaps the Mary fearon or Govr. Livingston or both may be taken up for the Publick service. I shall know to morrow, and if so shall write to you to ship the other Things in those Vessels. The Money is impossible. I am with much Esteem, Dear sir, &c.
2. Missing. Ross asked Jones directly to come to Noirmoutier: Jones to BF, March 14, above.
