Summary
Jay is often asked whether or not the Court of Spain has made any and what satisfaction to the Captain of the Dover Cutter and "still remaining uninformed on that head I must again request the favor of you to advise me of the actual state of that affair." The fear of an Indian uprising has been dispelled and the disturbances in Massachusetts have ceased. Hancock was chosen as governor in the last election by a large majority of votes. The situation in Rhode Island is still unpleasant without any compromise over the issue of paper money in sight yet. A convention of deputies from most of the states are now in session in Philadelphia for the purpose of considering the defects of the federal government. Their declarations and measures should be interesting. Still cannot send him a cypher.
