Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Ferdinand Grand, 22 October 1785

To Ferdinand Grand

Paris Oct. 22. 1785.


You spoke to me some days ago on the subject of the bills which Mr. Barclay might have occasion to draw on Mr. Adams. I informed you they were good and would assuredly be paid. I ought to have added that a Mr. Lambe would have bills to negociate on Mr. Adams which would be drawn in the name of a Mr. Randall. These will be equally good, the whole being for the service of the United states in a matter referred to the direction of Mr. Adams and myself. I mention it at this moment because I beleive Mr. Lambe has occasion to-day to negotiate a bill of this kind of three or four hundred guineas, which I advised him to offer to you. I have the honour to be with much esteem Sir Your most obedient humble servt.,

Th: Jefferson
