Summary:
She wonders why in the list of the new members elected to the Philosophical Society John Adams is listed as a late member of Congress and Jay is listed as Minister to Spain It is a slight undoubtedly out of jealousy of the power of Massachusetts. He has not suffered such slights abroad. A malignant rumor has been spread that while in France he has corresponded with the British ministry. The nation's ministers abroad should be protected from such calumny.
