Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 23 Jun. 1786

Paris June 23. 1786.

Dear Sir

I hear of a<n> conveyance which allows me but a moment to write to you. I inclose a copy of a letter from mr[expansion sign] Lamb. I have written both to him, & mr[expansion sign] Randall agreeable to what we had jointly thought best. the Courier de l’Europe gives us strange news of armies marching from the U.S. to take the ports from the English. I have received no public letters & not above one or two private ones from America since I had the pleasure of seeing you. so I am in the dark as to all these matters. I have only time left to address heaven with my good wishes for mrs[expansion sign] Adams & miss Adams, & to assure you of the sincere esteem with which I have the honour to be Dear sir / Your most obedt. / & most humble sert
