Summary
Cabarrus's plan has been adopted in part. Hurricane in Caribbean strikes St. Domingo and Jamaica. Savannah almost destroyed. The abbe has not yet arrived; suspects he has already been to the Pardo [sic]. Cumberland's factotum, Antony Smith, arrested in Cumberland's house. Paper in his possession was immediately delivered to Floridablanca. Reminds Jay bills due in February amount to more than $18,000-19,000 than Jay has funds for repayment. Summarizes accounts. In a few days, Jay will be able to see when the different accepted bills are due and can take necessary measures. Carmichael has reminded Cabarrus of his promise to try to appropriate the first payments he made for their use and has received strong assurances in reply. Report of Pensacola engagement loses credit.
