It appears from accounts depending in the Treasury & unsettled, that very considerable Supplies were furnished by the United States to the Marine of France in the years 1778 1779 & 1780, under the Agency of John Holker Esq late Consul general.

I request you if possible to attend the trial as Counsel for the United States. Mr. Lee the Attorney General is now here & will be able to inform you of the time when the trial will come on, and will concert with you the measures proper to be...

Le Ray de Chaumont with the United States, it appears to me to be important that the powers of the American Ministers and agents at the Court of versailles relative to procuring monies and supplies, and settling accounts on the part of the United States should be ascertained.
