Copies: Massachusetts Historical Society, National Archives (two); incomplete drafts: Library of Congress <Passy, April 22–May 3, 1778: You wrote us that you would, if desired, send the invoices of goods shipped for the public.

Copy: Library of Congress I duly received your favours of the 14th. & 17th. Instant. I am sorry to understand from you that the wollens are in such a situation as to endanger their being lost to the states: But do not see why it should be expected of me to point out a Vessel for them to be shipt in, or to approve or accept of any Contract you may make for the freight of them. The affair is...
AL (draft): American Philosophical Society I received yours of the 27th past, enclosing the Resolve of Congress relative to Mr T. Morris’s Papers.

Copy: Library of Congress I received your favour of the 11th. with the Accounts, Bill of Lading &c. of the Goods you have Shipped. If you remember right I promis’d only to assist you in the freight, but you have drawn upon for almost an equal Sum over and above, on Account of Charges, Commissions &c. These kind of Encroachements are disagreable, as well as inconvenient. I have however accepted...
ALS : Wisconsin Historical Society I received your Favour of the 24th. past, with the Order of Congress respecting your Accounts which I communicated to the other Commissioners, & I suppose you have receiv’d the Answer. I should imagine it would be best for you to come up with your Accounts in order to their more speedy Settlement. As to the Tobacco arrived, it is all long since engaged to the...
