1. The date was taken from a note on it that reads, “file Dec. 8. 1794.”
2. The draft has not been identified. It probably was for Randolph’s letter to Thomas Pinckney of 9 Dec., which reads: “I do myself the honor of inclosing to you a complaint in behalf of certain American Citizens, detained on board of the British Sloop of war Lark, commanded by Captain Rowley. My letter to Mr Hammond, and his answer, which will accompany this letter, will shew the reason, why I must beg your particular attention to the subject, as far as may be practicable” (DNA: RG 59, Diplomatic and Consular Instructions, 1791–1801).
