In hopes of obtaining from you the justice which has been so long denied us, we beg leave to inclose copy of the letter our late Partner and parent Mr. J. D. Schweighauser wrote to Congress the 30. Novr. 80 which will give you ample informations of our claims for our advances for the Continental frigate Alliance to which we join copy of the resolve which it produced. Mr. Johnson persisted in...
I have duly received your favor of Aug. 5. Being entirely uninformed and uninstructed on the subjects thereof, I could do no more than forward them to my constituents. This I have accordingly done, and will do myself the pleasure of informing you of their decision so soon as it shall be communicated to me. I have the honour of being with much respect Gentlemen your most obedient and most...
[ Nantes, 27 Jan. 1787. Recorded in SJL as received 31 Jan. 1787. Not found, but see TJ’s reply, 12 Feb. 1787.

I have received the order of Congress for the settlement of your accounts, of which order you were pleased to send me a copy in your favor of Jan. 27. I have reason to expect still an additional order on the same subject. This will probably arrive by the time I shall have compleated a journey into the South of France which my health obliges me to take. I purpose to return by the way of...
The departure of a packet boat for America, which gives me always a great deal of previous writing, has prevented my sooner acknoleging the receipt of your favor of July 19. inclosing the opinion of a lawyer on the questions existing between the United states and yourselves. Mr. Barclay’s settlement of your account having been made on view of copies of your vouchers only, I mentioned to you...
I have duly received your favor of Jan. 29 . Having sent a sample of the muskets to the commissioners of the treasury and asked their instructions relative thereto, and having reason to expect these very soon, it would be improper in me to consent to any previous disposal of them. Mr. Carnes wrote me on the 15th. of January that he had sent off, the day before, the papers relative to your...
I have at length been able to recover your papers, which had been mislaid at the bureau of the Diligence. Being called to Holland at a few hours warning I have only time to assure you that this settlement shall be one of my first occupations on my return, and that I am with great esteem Gentlemen Your most obedt. humble servt., PrC ( DLC ). This is no doubt a reply to a (missing) letter...
In my letter of Feb. 16. I had the honour to inform you that your vouchers, with their verification by Mr. Carnes, were not yet come to hand, and in that of March 3. that I had at length received them, but was in that instant obliged to set out to Holland. Since my return I have been so pressed by other business, that it has been impossible for me to undertake so voluminous a collection of...
We recieved in course your Excellency’s obliging letter of the 27h. of last month and are very thankful for its contents. We immediately communicated it to Mr. Minier one of the partners of the late house (en Comandite) of Puchelberg & Co. in L’Orient and he shares our gratitude for your kind endeavours of bringing the affair of the Alliance to a final settlement. After many interviews and...

Mr. Johnson refused to examine and settle the account, and to ascertain the...
We recieved in course Your Excellency’s kind letter of the 20th. Ulto. We knew nothing of the resolve of Congress of the 16th. October 1786. Whatever has been done in America respecting the Alliance since our first application has been witheld from us , and we have never had any answer to our repeated representations. We have shown the resolve and Your Excellency’s letter to Mr. Minyer and...
