Physical Description
A. L. S. Endorsed. Above the address on page 4 is written: "Missent to Hertford, Herts." 3 pp. 4o
Description
Acknowledges the receipt of letters from Philadelphia and New York; has written to "Mr. M. [Robert Morris?] of Philadelphia"; has labored to bring Chaumont to a settlement; Bancroft is now in Paris and may effect it for him; difficulties in the way of Deane's bringing suit; he has urged from the first that Mr. [Thomas] Barclay should be empowered to settle accounts between Deane and Congress; almost any settlement is preferable to none; war between the Emperor and Holland; war and royal amours engross the conversation of all, though little is known of either; opposition to the present Ministry is low; things go on smoothly; loud complaints of failure of remittances from America; he is going into the country to observe the new improvements in the manufacture of iron; a patent for the use of the steam-engine in mills would be more profitable than speculation in land or trade.
