COUNT DE VERGENNES TO JAY.
Versailles, March 13th, 1780.
I have received your favor of the 27th of January, and I am fully sensible of the confidence you have reposed in me, by communicating to me the object of your mission. You know too well the attachment of his Majesty to the United States not to feel assured that he sincerely wishes you success, and will be eager to contribute to it. The Count de Montmorin1 has received instructions accordant with this disposition, and I do not doubt that your confidence in him will enable him to fulfil them to your entire satisfaction.
I have the honor to be, &c.,
[1 ]French Minister at the Court of Spain.
