JAY TO D. HARTLEY.
New York, 17th March, 1792.
The impression made upon my heart and memory by the interest you have taken in the prosperity of this country, and by the friendly attentions for which I am indebted to you remain as fresh and strong as ever. Colonel Smith will give you more particular accounts of our public affairs than can be detailed in the limits of a letter. I will only observe in general that we have much reason to be satisfied and thankful. Whether and when your government will, by evacuating the posts, remove that inseparable obstacle to confidence and good humour is a question not a little interesting to both countries; they wish it may never take place who regard a good understanding between us as an evil.
Mrs. Jay desires me to present her compliments to you; she brought me a little girl a few weeks ago; so that I have now five children living. Adieu, my dear Sir,
