Summary
Says that he received Carmichael's letter of Aug. 7 and was delivered home "without any of those marks of impertinent curiosity which are impressed on almost all the letters I receive." Carmichael is to explain to Count Montmorin that he cannot come to San Ildefonso because of Mrs. Jay's illness, but he wishes to present his best wishes to Montmorin and to the Count d'Estaing and looks forward with pleasure to seeing them. No word from France since Carmichael left Madrid. Mr. C. is supposed to depart soon and Jay suspects he will leave without being very satisfied. If France, Spain and the United States remain united all will be well. Junction of the fleet an agreeable piece of news.
