TO M. DUMAS.
Leyden, 8 March, 1781.
I send you the letters; if any thing is necessary to be added to the memorial before the signature, you will be so good as to add it. I should be obliged to you for a line by the bearer in return, and the news if any. My first démarche, you see, is on the Prince’s birthday, which is, no doubt, a good omen both to his highness and your servant. You will please to put a wafer under the seals.1
[1 ]I soon returned to Leyden, and determined to begin by communicating the resolution of congress to the ambassadors of the neutral courts; first, to that from Russia. Letters to the Boston Patriot, 1809.
