TO T. DIGGES.
21 March, 1782.
Mr. Adams will stay at home, for the gentleman in number ten, whom he will receive at ten o’clock this day, sans cérémonie, provided the gentleman is content the conversation should pass in presence of Mr. Thaxter, Mr. Adams’s secretary.
But such is the situation of things here and elsewhere, that it is impossible for Mr. Adams to have any conversation with any gentleman from England, without witness; and, indeed, Mr. Adams’s advice to the gentleman is to proceed forthwith to Paris, and communicate whatever he has to say to Dr. Franklin and the Comte de Vergennes in the first place, without seeing Mr. Adams, who will certainly think himself bound to communicate whatever may be made known to him, without loss of time, to those ministers, as he has no authority to treat, much less to conclude, but in concert with them and others.
