Summary
Thanks Carmichael for prints and asks him to send his and Mrs. Jay's compliments to Mr. Gerard when he next writes to that gentleman. Jay opines that France's conduct continues to afford good proof of her sincerity and he had and has no doubts that she will adhere to her engagements. Since rumors of Russia's entry into the war have long since ceased. The behavior of the Commodore at Cadiz is not surprising. Carmichael's information concerning the Emperor's arrival at Paris is probably true. Asks Carmichael to make a proper entry of the receipt for 12,000 dollars received from the Court via Yranda.
