JAY TO LORD GRENVILLE.
Falmouth, June 8, 1794.
I landed here this evening with a commission from the President of the United States, constituting me their envoy to his Majesty.
The state of my health not permitting me to travel rapidly, I transmit the enclosed packet for your Lordship, with one for the Marquis of Buckingham, by the post. They were committed to my care by Sir John Temple; it appears to me more proper to deny myself the honour of delivering them in person, than, for that purpose, to detain them from your Lordships until my arrival in London.
I have the honour to be with great respect, my Lord, your Lordship’s most obedient and most humble servant,
The Right Hon. Lord Grenville,
One of His Majesty’s Principal Secretaries of State, White Hall.
