Summary:
Warmest congratulations on the treaty. The article on the loyalists will be difficult to enforce. Thinks the concealment from France of the negotiation and even now of the secret art is wholly unnecessary. This art shows enmity to Spain and a preference for the enemy. If west Florida be ceded at end of war to England or Spain it will be ceded as it was held by Britain The art. generally known here now. Sorry he has to disagree with the mode of forming the treaty. Has communicated his sentiments to Congress.
