Summary:
Commends him for his success in Holland, hopes that the loan being negotiated by Adams will go through. He continues to negotiate for Spanish recognition through Aranda at Paris. Changes in the British Ministry indicate retardation in the peace negotiations, for Shelburne has given no positive assurance through acts, that he intends to acknowledge independence. "War must make peace for us, and we shall always find well appointed armies to be our ablest negociators."
