Summary:
Acknowledges receipt of 29 July and 16 August. Because the DeNeufvilles found that a direct connection between the United States and the United Provinces was absolutely necessary, they worked hard for the American cause. They hope that Congress has not abandoned the idea of appointing them as commissioners of commerce. John Adams and Commodore Gill on cannot be dissatisfied with the reception they received in Amsterdam. The de Neufville were the first to refuse an attempted negotiation by the Spanish Court, because they feared a resulting increase in the circulation of paper money.
