From John Adams to Benjamin Franklin and William Jackson, 18 June 1781

To Benjamin Franklin and William Jackson

Amsterdam June 18. 17811

This is a Copy of a Letter from Coll. Laurens to me, which I have given to Major Jackson, to shew to his Excellency Dr. Franklin. I should think it most adviseable for Major Jackson to lay the Accounts of the Indian before his Excellency, and pray him to authorize, Major Jackson or Mr. De Neufville to draw upon him, for the Amount, in case of my absence, from this Republick, which may become necessary before Major Jacksons Return, which will however, without doubt be expedited as much as possible, as the Ship waits for nothing else.

John Adams

RC (PPAmP: Franklin Papers).

1This note is written at the bottom of a copy of John Laurens’ letter of 28 April to JA, above, and was clearly intended to be read by both Benjamin Franklin and William Jackson.
