Your Excellencies favor of the 4th. Instant this moment came to hand. The post is just going out, and therefore I have not time to say more, in addition to this acknowledgement, than that Congress yesterday appointed Mr. John Pierce, late Paymaster General, to succeed Mr. Fox who has resigned, and he will set out immediately to Virginia. I shall do myself the Honor to write you more fully...
Your favor of has been duly received, though we are sorry to inform you, the packett had sailed a few hours before, so that we could not by that opportunity forward the inclosures.

We have the honor of inclosing a copy of M.

We do ourselves the honor to inclose to your Excellency a paper which was put into our hands a few days ago by the Minister of France at a conference he had with us at his own request upon the case of Capt.

We have been honoured with your Excellencies favor of the 24th. Ult. together with its enclosures.

We do ourselves the honor to communicate to your Excellency the European intelligence which we have received to the 22d. of September by the last French packe[t.] The Affairs of Holland were at that time in a gloomy state as they respected the Patriots, and it is to be apprehended that before this, they must have been brought to a serious issue: it appears hardly possible that the event can be...
I do myself the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Excellencies favor of the 15th. Ult. to the Delegation.

I now add the Report of the Secretary for Foreign Affairs on the subject, which has not...
Since my last the Delegation has received your Excellency’s two favors of the 16th. ult. and the 8th. inst. The anonymous paper inclosed in the former certainly merits serious attention, and will be communicated to Congress. The Report of Mr. Jay on the Note of Mr. Van Berkel has not yet received a decision. The subject of it involves several nice questions which require an accurate attention...
