To John Adams from Elbridge Gerry, 8 August 1798

Havre 8th August 1798

Dear Sir

I propose to embark for the United States this day, & have only a moment to inform you that Mr Skipwith will transmit you from Paris the letters which passed between the minister of foreign affairs & myself, just before my departure from that city—

The aspect of affairs between the two republicks is very pacific at present on this side the Atlantick; God grant it may be so on my arrival the other side of it.

Pray present me in the most friendly terms to Mrs. Adams & be assured I remain / Dear Sir with respect your friend / & huml sert

E. Gerry
