Summary:
Adams has received the ratification of the treaty with Prussia, he will send Colonel Smith, or go to Holland himself, to make the exchange. The bearer of Adams' present letter, is Penn, who although a British subject, will acquaint Jay with the present "Disposition of this Court and nation" Adams laments from his inmost soul, that lust for paper money which appears in the United States; no sense of justice or clear credit will be uniform until paper money is done away. Adams is anxious to know the sentiments of Congress in response to the March 4th letter transmitting Carmarthen's on the subject of the posts and debts. Wishes to have instructions from Congress on the requisition of negroes: what payment, prices, and for what number should he make his demand.
