Passy, March 11. 1782.


Messrs. Laswood, Van Hasselt & Van Suchtelen, have in their Possession a Number of Bills, of which the Enclosed is a List,2 drawn by Fra: Hopkinson Treasurer of Loans, on Mr. Laurens, in favour of John Ross amounting in the whole to 40,958 Bank Florins. I have wrote to them to apply to you for Payment,3 and I have at the same time desired Mr. Grand to send you the Funds for so doing:4 But I omitted to require that they should be seen and accepted by Mr. Adams, which I think is necessary. I therefore now write to desire you would see that this be done before Payment. I have the honour to be, with great Esteem, Gentlemen, &c.

Messrs. Fizeaux & Grand.
