Notes on John Marshall

Mar. 21. mr John Marshall has said here that had he not been appointed minister to France he was desperate in his affairs, and must have sold his estate & that immediately, that that appointment was the greatest God-send that could ever have befallen a man. I have this from J. Brown & S. T. Mason.
