I have duly recieved your favor of the 5th. on the subject of the sloop Jane, which it was impossible to dispatch with the celerity you expected.

I have been prevented by business from sooner answering your favor of the 15th. In the mean time you will probably have seen a correspondence in the public papers between Mr. Hammond and myself explanatory of the subject of your letter. Lest you should not however I have the pleasure to inclose it to you. Still I think it will be prudent in merchants who send vessels to England, to instruct...

I shall notice these facts. the writer says that ‘the day after the last dispatches were communicated to Congress Bache, Leib &c. and a Dr. Reynolds were closeted with me.’ if the reciept of...
