HON. JOHN JAY, SEC’Y OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, TO GOV. CASWELL.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Office for Foreign Affairs, 3d July, 1787.

Sir:

The paper herewith enclosed contains Extracts from Letters which I received Yesterday from the Honorable Mr. Adams. The Nature of the information they convey is such that I think it my duty to transmit it to your Excellency without waiting for an Opportunity of previously communicating it to Congress, who for many weeks past have not been able to make a house.

I have the Honor to be, with great Esteem,
Your Excellency’s most Obedt. & humble Servt.,
JOHN JAY.
