LS : Archives du Ministère des affaires étrangères; AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress M. Grand, our Banker, acquaints me, that there will be wanting to discharge the old Bills drawn by Congress upon Mr Lawrens, Mr Adams and Mr Jay, with the usual Drafts on myself, all payable by the End of this Month, about the Sum of Five hundred thousand Livres; and that probably nearly as much more...
AL (draft): American Philosophical Society M. Franklin requests M. Le Roy to tell him the Name of the present Governor of Dominique, who is the Husband of one of the Ladies where we din’d at Epinay.— Also the Name of the Gentleman at whose house we din’d, M. F. having forgot it— This note may well be linked to Christopher Baldwin’s letter of Dec. 18. Right after the conquest of Dominica by the...
AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress The Chevalier Du Buysson, who has served with Distinction in the American War, & whose Conduct has been much approv’d by Congress, has requested me to present the enclos’d Memorial to your Excellency. If his Request is not irregular, and what he desires inconvenient, I hope it may be favourably considered. With great Respect, I am, Sir, Your...
AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress I received the Letter you did me the Honour of writing to me, the 20th of last Month, inclosing a Prospectus of the School at Ecully. As the Father of young Johonnot is still in France, and you have sent a Copy of the Prospectus to him, I expected to have heard from him, in case he had been dispos’d to change the Situation of his Son; and I delay’d a...
I am honour’d with your Excellency’s Letters of the 22d and 26th. past. The Proposal relating to the Goods was, you say, more unreasonable than you expected. It did not so much surprise me, who possess a former Sample exactly of the same Stile and Sentiment, and I therefore think this to be of the same Author. His Professions of Disinterestedness with regard to his Shares, are in my Opinion...

AL (draft): Library of Congress Enclos’d is a Letter to Mr Adams, which I send open for your Perusal. I send you also the Passport you desired. I heartily wish you a good Journey; and have the honour to be Sir, The preceding letter. The day before writing this letter, BF presented Barclay and Ridley to Vergennes at Versailles: Matthew Ridley’s journal, entry of Dec. 5 (Mass. Hist. Soc.).
Copy: Library of Congress Before I received yours of the 27th. past, I had Information from M. B. Vaughan of Mr. Laurens’s Treatment & Situation, and had sent orders to a Correspondent in London to furnish him with what Money he might have Occasion for. Your Zeal for his relief is nevertheless very commendable: I have also sometime since sent to London the Proposal of Congress to exchange for...
ALS : New York Public Library; copy: Library of Congress Not remembring precisely the Address of Mrs Strange, I beg leave to request you would forward the Enclos’d to her, which I receiv’d under my Cover from America. I formerly sent you from Philadelphia part of an Edition of Tully on Old Age, to be sold in London; and you put the Books, if I remember right, into the Hands of Mr Becket for...
Two copies: Library of Congress I received the Letter you did me the honour of writing to me the 27 of last Month: as the Copy of the Letter you inclosed does not mention the Name of the Person in whose Favour the Bills intercepted by the Enemy were drawn, nor their Dates, it is impossible for me to find out whether or not they have been already accepted. I shall do my utmost to discover them...
