I pardon readily the persons to whose care the Letter which I have received with yours of the 2d Inst., was committed, since their Remissness has procured me an honor and a pleasure, which I have long been sollicitous to obtain. The intelligence which you have been pleased to convey to me, respecting the Situation of affairs in America, is so much the more Agreable as it is a long time since I...
I received on the 26th. Decr. your favor of the 13th of that month. I have endeavoured in vain to decypher by means of the cypher which Mr. Barclay left with me the three first lines of your letter of the 14th June 1787. Nor have my efforts been more successful in my attempts to decypher that of Sep. 25th altho’ I have tryed every method perscribed for that Effect. I therefore take it for...

I...
Your reputation or my supposed Influence with you or both, joined to my desire of contributing to the pleasure of those who entertain such an Idea, Induce me to take the Liberty of presenting to your acquaintance the Marquis de Trotti, a young Nobleman from Milan who is not less distinguished for his desire of Information and Instruction than from his birth and amiable qualities.

I have waited with much impatience to learn the Issue of the propositions your Excellency was pleased to advise me you had made to our Minister at London respecting our Affairs with the Powers of Barbary. In continual Expectation of receiving letters on this Subject, I have deferred writing. Indeed without a safer method of communicating my sentiments on this and other subjects, I must deprive...
I forwarded last week by Mr. Symons the paper mentioned in my last. I have received no letters from America since, but have seen a Philadelphia paper of the 7th of April, in which there is published an extract of a letter from General Washington expressive of his opinion that the Constitution would be adopted by the State of Virginia. Here the attention of our politicians have of late been...
On the 29th Ulto. I had the honor to address you by a courier which this Court dispatched to the Marquis del Campo at London. This courier hath not set off at the time expected, so that you will receive this with the one of the date Abovementioned. [This day yours of the 22d Septr. inclosing Letters for Messrs. Lamb and Barclay reached me. The former is still at Alicant and this Night I...
Since I had the honor to address you, I received further Intelligence with respect to the Disposition of the Emperor of Marrocco. I inclosed a copy of the Letter communicated to me, the 15th. Inst. in one to his Excy. Benjamin Franklin which in case of his Absence, I directed to be opened by yourself or Mr. Adams. I have also received an accurate account of the Maritime Force of the Above...
I forward the inclosed Letter from M r. Lamb for your Excellencies Information: That Gentleman has also written to me, But as I suppose he has given M r. Jefferson a more ample & satisfactory Detail of the State of his Negotiation than I can comprehend from his Letter to me, I do not think it necessary to forward a Copy of it. M r. Barclay to whom I have communicated all the Intelligence I...
