From John Dawson
Rich: May 6. 94
On my return to this place on the last evening I receivd your letter1 with the enclosure for which I thank you.
The rejection of the resolution of your house for prohibiting the commercial intercourse with great Britain, by the senate gives much discontent, as far as I have heard observation on it. The nomination of a envoy exty. at the time it was mad⟨e⟩ appears to me singular, & no doubt had its influence on the fate of the resolution. But the person appointed I think in almost every point of view one of the most improper that coud have taken place.
We have nothing worthy communicating. With real esteem Yr. friend & Sert
