I have been favoured with your Letters of 14th & 19th instant; the latter enclosing an extract of a Letter from Govr Clinton. You will be pleased to accept of my thanks for your early attention to the contents of my Letter respecting Mrs DeLancey. I have the honour to be with great regard Sir Your Excellency’s most obt hble Servt NIC .
I am perfectly persuaded that the proceedings described in the enclosed Letter are such as your Excellency highly disapproves of. It is probable that complaints have been made to you respecting them, & I doubt not that everything proper has been done on the subject. I am much affected by the distresses to which Mrs DeLancey has been exposed by the violent conduct of those persons she complains...
ALS : American Philosophical Society I have written to Captain Jones relative to my having a passage on board of the Alliance. It will be agreeable to me to stay in Paris with my family until she is ready to sail, & I should be obliged to you if you would let me know when you think it proper for me to set out for L’Orient, & what Passengers are to go in her. I have the honour to be Sir your...
Copy: National Archives Being desirous of returning to america we request that the Alliance may be orderd to convey us thither. We are induced to desire this not only from a regard to our own safety but also from a sense of the dishonor it woud reflect on our Country to have persons returning from the employments we have filled in her service, made prisoners in trading Vessels or obliged to...
AL : American Philosophical Society Mr. & Mrs. Izard present their Compliments to Dr. Franklin, & will have the honour of waiting on him to dinner on Monday the 5th. of July.— Addressed: A Monsieur / Monsieur Franklin / Ministre Plenipotentiaire / des Etats Unis de l’Amerique / à Passy.— In the husband’s hand.
I have received your favour of 13th. May, on the subject of Dr. Franklin’s conduct on the 12th. of last January, for which I thank you. I should have been glad if you had gone more fully into it; perhaps however it is unnecessary, as the principal fact is established. I can have no objection to your communicating our correspondence on this subject to Dr. Franklin; but you will be good enough...
ALS : Historical Society of Pennsylvania We have been informed that the destination of the Alliance Frigate has been altered, & that she is not to sail immediately for America. We can not help expressing our great uneasiness at this measure, as we are of opinion that there is no service, in which she can be so usefully employed, as that of convoying the Vessels bound thither. Many of our...
As I have not been able to procure from Dr. Franklin his reasons in writing for disobeying the order of Congress of 7th May 1778, I have desired Mr. Lee to favour me with a Copy of his Minutes, respecting our conversation on that subject on 12th of January last. I enclose them for your perusal, and should be obliged to you if you would attest them. If you find any mistakes, or omissions, you...
I am informed by a Letter from Nantes that the Alliance arrived there the 18th, and that she had 250 Men on board; she will therefore probably sail soon. My first Letter to you after your departure from hence desired that you would put the Letters addressed to the Committee, and to the Delegates from the State of South Carolina on board of some vessel that would sail before the Alliance. Your...
I am favoured with your Letter of 12th, and am sorry to find that you have had so much trouble about the Frigate. The accounts which we had of the small number of hands she had, made it probable that she would not sail soon. Perhaps this detention may prove to be “all for the best.” Some wise people are of opinion that this is always the case; and though the maxim has undergone the criticism...
