Summary:
Concerning the capitulation of Charleston, the reputation of the garrison will suffer until their conduct is explained. They are severely censured here. Jay believes that all the belligerents desire peace. The pride of the king of England will be the greatest obstacle, but in attempting to save his dignity he may lose his crown. No news yet of Laurens. What is to become of his bills? Jay has accepted between ten and twelve thousand dollars drawn upon him. Jay mentions that a daughter was born into his family.
