From George Washington

By the last post from the southward I received your letters of the 17th. and 24th. of April, with their enclosures.
In a letter of the 7th. of May, which I wrote to the Secretary of the Treasury from Charleston, I expressed my approbation of what he informed me had been determined by the Vice-President and the Heads of Departments, relative to Mr. Short’s negociation at Amsterdam, and the further progress of the loans in Holland. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,
RC (DLC); in clerk’s hand, except for signature; at foot of text: “The Secretary of State”; endorsed by TJ as received 21 June and so recorded in SJL. Dft (DNA: RG 59, MLR). FC (DNA: RG 59, SDC).
