Title:
Document, 1780 October 25
Abstract:
De Neufville & Son are certain that the treatment Laurens is receiving at the hands of the English will bring the contempt of the world on them. Adams and James Searle are now in Amsterdam, and the De Neufvilles have spoken to them of the prospect of "a friendly mutuall intercourse of commerce" between the United States and their house. They thank John Jay for recommending them to Congress. Some letters of De Neufvilles may have been among the papers of Laurens seized by the British, but they would have contained nothing but expressions of good will for the American cause. De Neufville & Son are not so optimistic about paper money as John Jay is. Money for loans is still scarce in Holland, for "Anglomany prevails, and could most easily ruin our country by a public bankrupt."
