GALLATIN TO MONROE.
London, June 3, 1814.
I had in April last written to Mr. Crawford urging the necessity of obtaining the friendly offices of the Emperor of Russia. It was in answer that he wrote the letter of which an extract was sent in mine of yesterday to you. I had also written to General La Fayette respecting the critical situation in which the United States were placed by the general European peace. I have this moment received letters from both. No. 1 is an extract from Mr. Crawford’s letter of 24th May, in his own cipher. No. 2, in my cipher, is a copy of so much only of his memoir on our war, presented to the Emperor of Russia, as respects the conditions of peace suggested by him. No. 3 is an extract of La Fayette’s letter to me. No. 4 is the translation of so much of his note to the Emperor of Russia as respects the terms of peace as above. No. 5 is an extract of Mr. Crawford’s letter of 28th May to us. No. 6 is a copy of La Fayette’s letter to him. These two last are in Mr. Crawford’s cipher, those parts which are underlined excepted, which are in my own.
