JAY TO THE GOVERNORS OF THE STATES.
Office for Foreign Affairs,
I have the honour of informing your Excellency that Congress have received a letter from His Most Christian Majesty, dated the 27th of March last, announcing the birth, on that day, of a prince, whom he had named Duke of Normandy.

I have the honour to be, with great respect,
Your Excellency’s most obedient servant,
