I have lately the pleasure of your letters of the 22d of April and first of may. The last was particularly acceptable, as it removed all anxiety about the June payment, in a mode quite satisfactory to me.

Your letter of the 27th. of December came duly to hand and gave me the agreeable intelligence of your having effected a loan for the United States.

An attack of the malignant fever which has of late afflicted the City of Philadelphia has occasioned me to be for some time absent from that City for the recovery of my strength.

A letter from me previous to my late journey will have assured you of my satisfaction at the...

I received, two days since, the letter which You did me the honor to write me of the 14 of January last, inclosing the copy of one of the same date to Mr Short. I regret the state of things as there exhibited, and my regret will be increased, if circumstances shall have rendered it necessary, to allow the high rate of five per cent for the contemplated loan. I hope, nevertheless, a better...
It being understood, that you have retained in your hands a sufficient sum to discharge the balance of salary, due to Mr. Jefferson, as Minister plenipotentiary at the Court of France, it has been deemed inexpedient to change the course of the thing, by paying him that balance here. He, therefore has informed me, that he will draw upon you, on that account, for three hundred and fifty pounds...

I received after the departure of the last post your letter of the 8th inst. ⟨I⟩ am really sorry to find that you persist in pretensions which I should have hoped must have been removed by the observations contained in mine of the 3d. instant & of which you acknowlege the receipt.

The sale of 895,000. lb. Salpetre by our East India Company took place on Wednesday: We had orders from You to buy 100. to 110,000 lb. without limitation of price: Notwithstanding which We could but presume, whenever Orders are not given to be executed at any price, be it ever so high, that you relied upon our not going to prices extravagant beyond Conception, but on the Contrary, that We...

Triplicates of your letter of the 25th. of January last have duly come to hand. As the success of the negotiations for the purchase of the Debt due from the United States to France would have been an unwelcome circumstance; I learn with pleasure that it had not taken place.

The departure of the post leaves me barely time to inform you that I have at length recieved a letter from the Secretary of the Treasury which renders it necessary that I should know the present situation of the loan opened at Amsterdam & with as much precision as you can have, the time when you think another could be set on foot there. I will thank you to give me the information by the return...

The duplicate of your letter of Dec. 27. has come to my hands with its inclosures. The first has not yet been recieved. I mention this as a guide.

I have learnt with some surprise, through Mr. Short, that the price of the effects of the United States had undergone a sudden depression in the market of Amsterdam. This is so different from the tenor of the hopes I had built upon those expressed by you, and so contrary to all the calculations I can form on the natural course of the thing, that I cannot but be curious for a particular...
