Summary:
Mr. FitzSimons, one of the commissioners on the claims of British debts, would like John Jay's opinion on two questions relating to that business: (1) on which side lay the onus probundi respecting the solvency or insolvency of the debt; (2) whether interest should or should not be allowed during the war. John Jay's ideas on the question of interest, in the judicial decision given by him in Virginia, are particularly requested.
