Summary:
De Neufville is sorry that the Dutch have been so patient. Some Dutch privateers are at sea ready to go. "We ourselfs caused an adres to be made to the States for a Letter of Marck of ours with liberty to clear out for Philadelphia and Boston." It was granted, and a second one was applied for. De Neufville's ships will be permitted to join with French, Swedish, American, and Spanish vessels to carry goods to their ports. The present time, De Neufville thinks, is a good one to form a commercial alliance. The English party loses day by day to Laurens and received the first commission for goods for Congress. On the fourth of July De Neufville hopes to celebrate the anniversary of American independence with Major Jackson, Colonel Searle, and other Americans at Amsterdam. Endorsed by John Jay."Recd. 13 July 1781." Typescript from an autograph letter signed in a private collection.
