I am honour’d with yours of the 19th. Inst. I received a Letter from Capt. Jackson dated at Bilbao the 12th. in which he mentions nothing of his departing thence for America, so that I should have continued to expect him here, if he had not written positively to you of that Intention. Mr: Barclay, the Consul, too, I thought would have been here before this time, and I know not what detains him...

AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress I received the honour of your Letter, dated the 12th Instant, wherein you inform me that “the Owners of the Vessels will certainly ask a much greater Advantage on the Freight now, both on Acct of the Season and the Want of Convoy, as on Acct. of the heavy Expences they were put at by Come.

LS : Henry E. Huntington Library I have lately received from your Father for your Use, a Bill of Exe [Exchange] on Paris, at 30 Days sight, to the Amount of one thousand three hundred & fifty Livres Tournois: I this Day sent it to Mr. Grand, Banker, Requesting him to get it accepted & when due to receive the Money & hold the same at the Disposition of your Father or self. I mention’d both, not...
AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress On reading over again, and reconsidering your Papers, it did not appear to me necessary that I should write to the Ministers in your Favour, the Recommendations you bring directly from Congress being superior to any that could proceed from me; and it would be absurd in me to suppose that mine could add weight to them. Being however truly sensible of...
I congratulate your Excellency on the late great Event. I received yours of the 12th. I wrote my Mind fully on the Subject of the Goods in mine to you by Mr. Fox, which I suppose must have come to your hands soon after that Date. Gillon wrote to me that Mr. Searle and Jackson were gone to France.1 As it is so long since, and they are not arrived, I suppose it may be true that they are gone to...

AL (draft): Library of Congress I received your Favour by Mr Hobart. I caus’d an Application to be made to Almon in Behalf of Mrs Barry, but do not learn that it is like to meet with any Success. As the Transaction was between yourself & him, no other Person but you can claim with Authority: I must therefore beg for the poor good Woman’s Sake, that you would do something effectual in it. I...
AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress I received the Letter you did me the Honour of Writing to me the 1st of September. It was by Order of Congress that I directed the Offer of Money to be made you, but it would be a Pleasure to me if I could be otherwise useful to you. If you have furnish’d any Correspondent here with a distinct Account of your Property in the several retaken Vessels you...
AL (draft) and copy: Library of Congress Mr Franklin presents his best Respects to Mr Hobart, thanks him for the Notice of his Departure, and heartily wishes him a good Journey. Enclos’d is a Letter for Mr. Pownall. The late Event, if it might contribute to bring forward a Reconciliation, would indeed as you observe be a happy one: But I do not think your Nation yet sufficiently dispos’d to...
