From George Washington
[Philadelphia, July 9, 1794]
Your letter of yesterday was handed to me this day. As delay under present circumstances may attend the negotiation of a Loan in Holland by our Minister Resident there, for the purpose of the Algierine business,1 it appears to me expedient to send a power to our Commissioners at Amsterdam for that purpose.
