Title:
Document, 1785 April 07
Abstract:
Report on Mr. Sayre: people in London had a favorable opinion of him even when his bank failed. Took the American side of the question and was imprisoned for it. Later went to France rather than stay and have a place in the government as promised him by Rockingham. He went to both Berlin and Copenhagen at the request of the commissioners. Advised to go to Stockholm by French minister in Copenhagen to be of aid to America. Jay sends his request for compensation. Jay thinks he deserves to be paid and Franklin and Lee should be asked their advice.
