Paris, 28 October 1787.
Most Esteemed Sir,
I am in great want of a copy of the letter of Lord Carmarthen to you, on the receit of which Congress proposed to the different States <
[. . .]> to declare void all laws repugnant to the contents in the treaty of peace. You will oblige me much, my dear Sir, if you send it me by the return of the post; if delayed, it won’t be in time. I wrote you some time past an italian letter, which I hope you have received. I have now just time enough to beg that you will present my most respectful compliments to Mrs. Adams & Mrs. Smith, & assure Col. Smith of my sincere friendship & regard.
I have the honor to be, most sincerely, with regard & esteem, / Dear Sir, / Your most Obedt: Humb. Servt.
