Title
[Document, 1780 June 29]
Abstract
Found it necessary to write his letter of 27 June in order to suspend the conference Carmichael on his own initiative had called with Montmorin. Jay would have preferred talking the matter over with Carmichael rather than having to write his criticisms but necessity forced him to write. Reiterates why it was wrong to propose the conference and to remit information to the Chevalier de Bourgoigne abo ut Cumberland. Carmichael's letter has removed his fear concerning their different views on Carmichael's powers. It was not Jay's intention to impeach Carmichael's prudence or understanding. He had no desire to wound Carmichael's feelings and would always like to avoid any uneasiness with persons with whom he works.
