The letter to Payne is left open for your perusal. You will see that I have referred him to you for paiment of this bill which will be a little over 20. guineas. My reason for this is that as you will have...
I have the honor to inclose you by Mr. Parker the act of ratification by Congress of the loan of a million of florins for which Mr. Adams executed and deposited bonds with you in March last.

I take the liberty of troubling your Excellency on the subject of the Arrêt which has lately appeared for prohibiting the importation of Whale oils and Spermaceti, the produce of foreign fisheries. This prohibition being expressed in general terms, seems to exclude the Whaleoils of the United states of America, as well as of the nations of Europe. The uniform disposition however which his...
I thank you, my dear Madam, for the charming glass you have sent me. The beauty of the form had struck me at your house, where all is beautiful, and I meant to trouble your maitre d’hotel only, with the commission you have been so friendly as to take on yourself.
