Comme Cest aujourdhuy le Courrier de Nantes Mr Grand croit devoir envoyer cette reponce par Exprès a Monsieur Franklin pour qu’il puisse en faire usage encorre aujourdhuy. Il à Lhonneur de lui observer en meme temps qu’il na point encorre reçu de reponce de Versailles sur le projet de Lettre pour Le Congrés; Et de Lasseurer de Son respect.

[Note numbering follows the Franklin Papers source.]

2November 29 was a Wednesday in 1780, and it was also the day on which Vergennes answered Grand about his “projet,” which Grand had submitted to him on Nov. 25. (See our headnote to BF to Huntington, Dec. 2.) We therefore presume that Grand sent this to BF before he received Vergennes’ answer.
