BENJAMIN FRANKLIN TO JAY.
Passy, Feb. 22d, 1780.
It gives me infinite pleasure to hear of your Excellency’s safe arrival in Spain. Knowing that the Confederacy had Sailed the 28th of Octr. we began to despair of ever hearing more of her.
I received your advice of the bill drawn on me for four thousand and seventy-nine livres tournois, at sixty days date, which I order’d to be immediately paid as you desired. I have also lodged a credit for you at Madrid of 24,000 Livres, deducting this bill. You will be so good as to furnish Mr. Carmichael with 1800 livres of it, which he has desired of me.
I enclose a letter of introduction to the Marquis d’Yranda with whom the credit is placed, and whose acquaintance and friendship may be otherwise of use to you.
With great esteem and respect
