I have received your friendly letter and am much obliged to you for your kind remembrance and solicitations. I also thank you for the Trouble you have taken in sending my Books to the gentlemen of whom I gave you a list. But I wish to be informed whether you sent the three Volumes or only the first. I directed Mr: Dilly, Bookseller in the Poultry, London to send fifty Copies of each of the...
I have learnt with some surprise, through Mr. Short, that the price of the effects of the United States had undergone a sudden depression in the market of Amsterdam. This is so different from the tenor of the hopes I had built upon those expressed by you, and so contrary to all the calculations I can form on the natural course of the thing, that I cannot but be curious for a particular...
I am just honored with your several favours of Nov 21st & 24th & December 2d. I learn with regret the disappointment, which has attended your endeavour, to procure a loan for the united states, at the reduced rate of four per cent interest.

I have barely time to acknowledge by the extraordinary of tomorrow the receipt of yours of the 22d. inst. in which you propose that the sec. of the Treasury should settle the rate of commission on the last loan. It would seem that the rate at which any business is to be transacted should be looked for in the powers authorizing the transaction of that business—still if you think this matter...

Since my last I have not seen M. Dufresne & of course have nothing new to say to you concerning the disagreeable affair of the rate of exchange for the million of florins paid by you. I fear he will not consent to any other mode of settling it than that of the current rate ascertained by sworn brokers agreeably to the data of Messrs. Hogguers & Co’s draught furnished you. I hope you will...

My last to him was of the sixteenth of February mentioning the Necessity of an Application in America for the Object a part of which it is my Intention to effectuate by this Letter. Be...

Mr. Jefferson has heretofore drawn on Messrs. Vanden Gores for (6500) six thousand & five hundred french Livres to pay for the swords, & that sum was paid as you advised one in the time of it— Mr. Jefferson has lately applied...
Your letter of the 27th. of December came duly to hand and gave me the agreeable intelligence of your having effected a loan for the United States. This information arrested the progress of the measures I was taking to place in your hands by Remittances from hence a sum equal to the ensuing Installment of the Dutch debt as well as for the payment of Interest up to the first of June...

Your letter of the 22d of August informed me that you had opened a loan for six millions of ⟨florins⟩ & it gave me real pleasure as it never could have entered into my mind that any other conditions than those presented & repeated in my several letters authorizing the loan could have been adopted.

I acknowlege the receipt of your letters of the first & twenty sixth of September of the last year.

I received after the departure of the last post your letter of the 8th inst. ⟨I⟩ am really sorry to find that you persist in pretensions which I should have hoped must have been removed by the observations contained in mine of the 3d. instant & of which you acknowlege the receipt. It becomes useless for us to discuss this subject longer. For my part I examined it in all its parts not so much...
