Title:
Document, 1779 July 28
Abstract:
DeNeufville & Son have been encouraged by several friends to offer theirservices to Congress in establishing a direct commercial correspondence betweenthe United States and the United Provinces. In order to form such a desirableconnection, the choice of a mercantile house like DeNeufville's to act asCommissioner and Treasurer would be all that was required. Charges would be atthe usual commercial rates so that the United States would be spared theexpenses of salaries. Moreover, such an arrangement would make it possible toexclude politics from trade. A number of Dutch bankers have expressed aninterest in the American cause, and within a short time, a loan to help American credit might be possible.
