TO M. VAN BLOMBERG.
Amsterdam, 3 November, 1780.
Mr. Adams presents his compliments to Mr. Van Blomberg; hopes his health continues to return to him; wishes to know the answer of Mr. Bowens;1 because Mr. Adams has delayed the business already so long, that it is become necessary to come to a conclusion as soon as possible.
[1 ]This Mr. Bowens and sons was a capital house in Amsterdam, near relations of Mr. Bicker, who recommended them to me after the Vollenhovens had refused. Although these gentlemen received me very kindly and politely, as the Vollenhovens had done, and had given me some hopes, yet the Prince’s denunciation of M. Van Berckel and the burgomasters of Amsterdam had excited such an alarm that the Bowens were intimidated and refused.
