Has read with pleasure the letter which he wrote to Pinckney, and also
notices with approbation the use to which Adet's indiscrete note has been put. While Jay
does not expect war with France, the popular demonstrations in support of that nation
are to be regretted. While in Spain he communicated some information given to him by
Montmorin. As this may still be in cypher, and should not be revealed during the life of
the Minister, it should be used with caution, but does give an excellent indication of
the state of affairs at the beginning of the Revolution.
