John Jay to John Adams, 5 Dec. 1785

New York 5th: Decemr. 1785

Dr. Sir

I cannot omit this Opportunity of transmitting to You a Copy of an Act of Congress respecting Mr. Temple. It appears to me to be a proper one—In my Opinion our public Conduct should be just and liberal on the one Hand, but firm and decided on the other.—

I have the Honor to be with very sincere Esteem and Regard / Dear Sir / Your most obt. Servt.

John Jay
