Description
He wrote a few lines last night from Bath to inform Van Schaack that the letter enclosing White's affidavit and the other papers to Osborne had come to hand; on asking Dalteron if papers were satisfactory he learned that the fact of his father's [Peter Jay] having survived [Etienne] Peloquin or being alive after July 1778 was not sufficiently established, evidence being only hearsay; thinks the gentlemen more scrupulous than his correspondent or himself would be; is to meet them to-morrow and hopes for no more trouble; perhaps Herman Le Roy in his visits to Mr. Benson at Poughkeepsie might have seen his father, who resided there a considerable time before his death; desires Van Schaack to converse with him and to send his affidavit to Osborn direct.
