From John Adams to Anne Willem Carel Baron Van Nagell Van Ampsen, 30 March 1788

Bath Hotel March 30. 1788


The Letter of Recall herewith enclosed never reached my hand till this Moment when I was nearly to step into the Carriage for Portsmouth where I am to embark. Its omission in Season was wholly owing to the sickness of Mr Jay our Secretary of State for foreign affairs. I must request if you Sir to do me the honour to transmit it to their High Mightinesses with my humble and grateful Respects. With great Respect I have / the Honour to be Sir, your most obedient / and most humble servant
