Subjects:
United States--History--Revolution, 1775-1783; Jay, John, 1745-1829
Summary:
Replies to Peter's letter of the 26th; since he does not know about the preceding character or subsequent behavior of the person mentioned, or why an acquittal of his case did not replace him in status quo, he is too much uninformed to find foundation for a decided opinion. The subject is an important one, and therefore Peter should gather as much information as possible or wait until further delay would be improper. In the mean time there may be occurrences which will indicate the right road to take.
