I have only Time to introduce to you and Mrs Jay, my Daughter Smith and to recommend to her your Patronage and Mrs Jays Friendship. I shall embark in Six or Eight days. I am just returned from a cold Journey to the Hague and Amsterdam, where I met with Mr Jefferson very unexpectedly. He has persuaded me, to open another Loan, which he will transmit to Congress. I am very anxious lest it should...
I have only Time to introduce to you Coll Smith and to request in his behalf the Honour of your Friendship.—His Conduct in every Part of Europe, where he has been, I have good Reasons to believe have done honour to himself and gain a favorable Idea of his Country.

I am not at all Surprised therefore, although I am much mortified at having my Memorials to their High Mightinesses and to his most Serene Highness returned to me with the Letter inclosed from Mr Fagel. I should have had a...
I yesterday received Mr Remsens Letter of the 14. of December, with the Journals and Gazettes inclosed. At the last Conferences at Whitehall which were last Thursday, Lord Carmarthen thought proper to express a Wish that this Country had Some Sort of Treaty of Commerce with the United States of America, that it might be no longer neccessary to take new Measures from time to time which looked...
The Reverend Fr. Adr. Vanderkemp, a Clergyman whom I knew at Leyden, for several years, will have the Honour to deliver you this Letter.—His Ardent Zeal in the Cause of Liberty has made him a great Sufferer, in the late unfortunate Reverse, in Holland, and, an Exile from his own native Country, he now flies with his Family to America as an Asylum. His Wit, Talents, Learning and amiable...
Two Days ago, I received the Letter, you did me the Honour to write me, on the 16. of Octr. with its Enclosures. The Approbation of my Conduct in Europe expressed in the Resolution of Congress of the fifth of October does me honour, and demands my Acknowledgements. The Permission to return to America and the termination of my Commission in Holland, having removed all Difficulties, it is my...

I do myself the Honour to inclose the Kings Speech at the Opening of Parliament as it has been transmitted to me from the Marquis of Carmarthen: and the Morning Chronicle of the 28, which contains, not the debates, for there were none, but the Paneqyricks upon it. I have long Seen Sir, in Silent Astonishment and grief the negligent and imprudent Conduct of a deceased French Minister of foreign...
