Summary:
DumasÆ letter of August 27th had enclosed request from the ChargT dÆAffaires of the Count Palatine and Bavaria to go to Congress and then the government of Pennsylvania, with regard to a palatine citizen living in Philadelphia. Believes the courts in Pennsylvania are competent to deal with the ordinary course of justice between a private foreigner and a private citizen; does not think proper that the government of a country should interfere. As to other matters in DumasÆ letters -- as the new federal government will be organized soon, all but the most important foreign affairs have been put off until new government is in place.
