John Adams to the Secretary for the States General

13 Jun. 1785

Sir Westminster June 13. 1785

After I had written the inclosed Memorial and Letter I had the Opportunity of Shewing them to the Baron De Linden, who advised me to Send them, but to address them to you, and to leave it to you, to make what Use of them you Should judge proper and necessary.

In pursuance of his Advice therefore, I have the Honour to commit the Memorial to your Care and to request the Favour of you, to make Use of it, either with the Members of the States General in the Secret Committee, or to lay it before the Assembly of their High Mightinesses or to Suppress it, as you may judge most for the Honour of the United States, and as the Circumstances may require.

Permit me, Sir to express to you, at the same Time my Thanks for the obliging Politeness I have upon all Occasions experienced from you, and especially on this.

With great respect, I have the Honour / to be, Sir your most obedient / and obliged humble Servant

John Adams.—
