To Arthur Lee6

Passy, Oct. 9. 1779.


I have received no Answer relative to the Proposition you mention. Perhaps without waiting longer for an Answer, thro’ Versailles it might be as well for you to apply directly to the Spanish ambassador for the Information you desire. With much Respect I have the honour to be Sir, Your most obedt. humble servant


Honble. Arthur Lee Esq.
