The Wine from Mr. Stenson, hope reached you in safety, agreeable to the inclosed Bill. A Violent pain in my Head, for some days past, has depriv’d me noticing sooner, your obliging favor of the 25 Ulto.

I pass’d some melancholly months here, occasion’d by my poor wife’s long illness and death, and since I had the misfortune to loose her, my daughter was in a low state of health; my sufferings made a recluse of me and prevented my taking the liberty of paying my respects from time to time to Your Excellency, on whom I had that of calling yesterday to thank you for all the trouble you were...
I have received your Favour of the 6. Aug. with the Notes and Project inclosed. How can We send another Person? We have not in our Full Power authority to Substitute. Will not the Emperor and the Regencies feel their Dignity offended if a Person appears without a Commission from Congress? Do you mean that he Should only agree upon the Terms and transmit them to Us to be Signed? if you think...

Le Comte de Grasse, dont l’objet etoit d’affirmer que j’avois été premier Sécrétaire de l’armée qu’il commandoit lors de la prise d’York-Town et de Glocester. Mon but, Monsieur, etoit d’obtenir des Etats unis, une...
