Subjects:
United States--History--Revolution, 1775-1783; Jay, John, 1745-1829
Summary:
John Jay has done all that is necessary with Mr. Duane. He has probably procured copies of some of John Jay's communications to Congress and Adams' letter to Jonathan Jackson; does not apprehend any evil that can come of either. Has just seen Jay's first charge to the Grand Jury as chief justice of New York in 1777, an "elegant and masterly composition." It revived pleasant and painful memories. "The snare is broken, and we have escaped--but Heaven alone knows how."
