Summary:
Extracts of DumasÆ letters to Jay, taken by his request for the perusal of Mr. Jefferson. March 2: Money still due him. Jefferson sent very important secret letters on pack boat to Jay, coming from Dumas. Sent the Leiden Gazettes; crisis in the republic has ended well for the patriot party. Happy that the United States has no minister in Netherlands; already too much intrigue among the nations. Situation of the Stadholder pitiable, since abandoned by his brother-in-law the French king. March 23: Affairs of Holland: patriotic party still triumphant. Begs Jay to not send as minister a person "who it is said at The Hague is pushing for the office -- it would be displeasing to the patriotic party and to France." March 30: Sends translation of StadholderÆs missive to the States of Overijssel and their answer. One of American bankers elected by the bourgeoisie of Amsterdam as their representative.
