To José de Jaudenes and José Ignacio de Viar
Mar. 3. 1792.
Th: Jefferson presents his respectful compliments to Messieurs de Viar and de Jaudenes. Tho’ the arrangements on the negociation with Spain are not yet all taken, yet he has no reason to doubt they will be so in the course of a week or two, and that they will perfectly accord with the expectations of the gentlemen.
PrC (DLC). TJ was responding to an anxious request for information the previous day inasmuch as “the Spanish vessel … will positively sail by the middle of next week” (Jaudenes and Viar to TJ 2 Mch. 1792; RC in DNA: RG 59, NL; endorsed by TJ as received 2 Mch. and so recorded in SJL).
