United States--History--Revolution, 1775-1783; Jay, John, 1745-1829
Summary:
Autograph Draft. Received letter of the 22nd, and Gazetteer: latter will be put in Town Library or other place where it is "most likely to excite attention." Accuracy of articles cannot be assumed however, as information in the Bedford article not true, yet "John Jay" given as source of that material. The Gazetteer is useful and interesting and deserves Encouragement. A history of the States however would be an arduous task. Acknowledges the extract of letter Adams to Spafford, containing "sentiments" respecting Jay.
