WILLIAM T. FRANKLIN TO JAY.
Philada. 16th Oct., 1785.
Mr. Hudon, of whom you have heard me speak, will have the honor of delivering you this. He is lately returned from Virginia where he has been fulfilling the object of his coming to America in modelling the bust of Genl. Washington in which he has been singularly successful.
He is now about returning to France by the way of N. York. I have persuaded him to take with him the Genl’s bust, that he has given us, in order to shew Congress what he is capable of doing, and thereby obtaining the Preference in being employ’d to make the Equestrian Statue voted long since.
I beg leave to recommend M. Hudon to your Civilities and I am persuaded his merit will procure him your good Offices.
I cannot close this, without returning you my sincerest thanks for the many Marks of favor and friendship you gave me lately at York. I have added them to those you formerly conferr’d on me, and shall ever retain a grateful remembrance of both.
Permit me to assure Mrs. Jay of my respect, and to make her my most thankful Acknowledgements for the Civilities and attention she so kindly shew’d me.
With great respect, Esteem and Affection,
