Summary:
Often Carmichael does not inform the Jays of vessels sailing from Cadiz, and their letters often miss the sailings as a result. "I've already explained to you my ideas of that gentleman and of his conduct towards us has not ceased to give us more pain than pleasure." Sarah will have Major Franks buy a set of maps in France so that Peter can learn geography "while he only thinks of amusement." Regrets that Jay's father has left Fishkill, but they have been persecuted by misfortunes. Have received no letters from Sir James. Criticizes Jay's associates; "one of them is the most insidious and deceitful man I have ever known."
