From Jacob van Staphorst

Paris, 13 Jan. 1788. A letter from his brother states that there is hope of settling shortly with Fizeaux & Cie. to TJ’s satisfaction; no advice has been received from Mr. Adams; suggests that TJ write to both houses in accordance with conversation of yesterday. Mr. Ingraham’s vessel, the Amsterdam, which sailed from Philadelphia in December, arrived in the Texel, but letters had not been brought up when his brother wrote.
