Summary:
According to enclosed correspondence from Franklin, the acceptance of bills drawn on Laurens has been stopped. However, Adams asked the De Neufvilles to continue to pay the bearers of such bills for a few days, and they are complying with his request because they expect him to accept these bills in the future. De Neufville & Son do not know the sums or terms of the loan Adams is trying to negotiate. It does not seem likely that one can be obtained at present on the basis he wishes. If the several loans sought could be consolidated into one loan, the De Neufvilles believe they could obtain for Congress within a short time all the money "and all the credit she might want." Enclosures: [before 9 November 1780], Correspondence from Benjamin Franklin.
