In answer to some Questions contained in your Letter of Sepr. 26 you may know that Mr. Laurens might pay any sum up to five hundred po unds s terling therefore the same is now to be done at discretion. F. Dana is accompanied under somewhat similar discretionary stipulations. Indeed you are mistaken about the Scales. I should be happy to be sure of what you only conjecture. I mean that J. Jay...
I have recieved those Instructions, with which I was honoured by Congress on the sixteenth of August, and communicated them forthwith to the French Ambassador to their High Mightinesses, and to the American Ministers at Versailles and Madrid. The Duke de la Vauguyon was of opinion, that they were very well considered, and very well timed, to counteract another Trait of British Policy, in...
ALS : New York Public Library; copy: Library of Congress Not remembring precisely the Address of Mrs Strange, I beg leave to request you would forward the Enclos’d to her, which I receiv’d under my Cover from America. I formerly sent you from Philadelphia part of an Edition of Tully on Old Age, to be sold in London; and you put the Books, if I remember right, into the Hands of Mr Becket for...
ALS : University of Pennsylvania Library I have already wrote you by this Conveyance. You doubtless will have heard of Mr. Deane’s Letters that have made so much noise in our Hemisphere, and which have ruined him in the opinions of his Countrymen. In hearing these Letters spoke of in various Companies, Dr. Bancroft’s name has been brought in question, and I find him lay under some suspicions—...
LS : Historical Society of Pennsylvania, University of Pennsylvania Library; copy: Library of Congress I observe that in your Letter of the twelfth of September you say you beleive those Bills of Mr. Ross’s must go back protested. This I am convinced proceeds from a Mistake with respect to that Transaction. It is true that the Resolution for delivering those Bills to Mr. Ross was passed in...
Yesterday I was honored with your Excellency’s Letter of that Date; and on a Conference with the Director General and Doctor Latimer, have taken such Measures, as in the opinion of those Gentlemen and my own, have been judg’d most likely to carry the designed Establishment into Execution effectually and without Delay. If any further Assistance within my Power shall be wanting I shall give it...
I take the liberty to enclose to Congress Copy of a letter which I have lately received from Major General Greene, on the subject of the promotion of Colo. Williams of the Maryland line to the Rank of Brigadier. If it is necessary to add any thing to the recommendation of General Greene—I can assure Congress, that Colo. Williams, as an Officer of merit, has ever stood high in my estimation—and...
Inclosed is copy of a resolution of Congress directing me to furnish an escort for the mail between Morristown and Fishkill; in consequence of which three or four dragoons have since been assigned to that duty: their horses are now worn down with fatigue—the leaves are off the trees, which will deprive the lurking mail-stealers of cover—and troops are on the communication. If your Excellency...
The inclosed letters from general Bailey and Mr Adams, were handed me a few days since by captain Edgar, the person refered to in those letters. Captain Edgar’s want of money has induced him not to think of proceeding farther southward. He is for the present gone to Albany, where he has several friends. He informs me, that there is undoubtedly a plan of union maturing between the british...
I beg leave to refer to your attention the inclosed letter from Capt. Swan, particulary so much of it as respects the furnishing three hundred sets of Horse Accoutrements which only want Bits and Stirrups to compleat them. The swords which are the most essential Weapons for Dragoons with their Belts should also be procured if possible. I presume a certain proportion of Cloathing will be...
