Summary
He has received applications from the interested parties in the Dover Cutter matter as to when they can expect to receive compensation and Jay wishes to receive information on this subject. A letter of Jay to Carmichael is being forwarded through Jefferson. It deals with the demands of South Carolina on the Spanish court for the use of their frigate on the expedition against Providence and the Bahama islands. Congress has not charged Jay with any new instructions for Carmichael. Carmichael should inform the (Spanish) minister that elections in the United States have been responsible for delays which the minister might otherwise consider singular. Once the Moroccan treaty arrives Congress will thank the Spanish king for his good offices during the negotiation.
