“List of Letters from Mr. Jay …” to H, Columbia University Libraries.
1. Jay had gone to Europe in January, 1780, as Minister Plenipotentiary to Spain. In June, 1782, he went to Paris to serve as one of the commissioners to negotiate peace with Great Britain. The definitive peace treaty was signed in Paris on September 3, 1783, and in mid-October Jay went to England on the advice of doctors that the waters of Bath would improve his health.
