Name:
Jay, John, 1745-1829; Van Schaack, Peter, 1747-1832
Title:
Document, 1782 September 17
Abstract:
Jay must always do his duty. He would never be motivated by private resentment to injure an individual. No man is to be blamed for choosing the side he judged right in the war. Yet several Americans took sides with Britain because of dishonorable motives. "You mention my brother - if after having made so much bustle in and for America, he has (as is surmised) improperly made his peace with Britain, I shall endeavor to forget that my father had such a son." Asks about his family and health.
