Title
[Document, 1780 June 19]
Abstract
Has two letters, one from a sensible young Mary Lander, a friend of Sir James Jay, offering services in London; another from a pretty young girl [in London?] also offering services. Has seen "our Abby," as John Jay wished, and finds him an intriguing and enterprising priest "with a conscience as pliant as a Ladys kid Skin glove." Mr. C[umberlan]d and family arrived at 8 this morning. The Abbe is as interested in Carmichael and Jay, as they are in him. Return of Carmichael's colic makes him little cherish the prospect of a banquet with forty Illustrious Spies. Has spoken to Del Campo about John Jay's letters being stolen at the port.
