Summary:
Glad the loan with the Dutch completed. The states have as yet not met their financial obligations to the federal government. The American people should so observe their part of the treaty as to force Britain to observe hers. Agrees with Adams on the refugees. If Britain objects to the powers of Congress to form treaties it will probably be for the purpose of delay. No reason to believe that the states want to send ambassadors to foreign countries. Adams' salary too small for a minister to Britain. Inquiry should be made as to the propriety of sending a letter of credence to the Queen. Glad to hear of the success of Adams' reception in England Thinks any difficulties will be surmounted by his temperate perseverance.
