John Adams to Charles William Frederic Dumas

16 Jul. 1785

Sir Grosvenor Square Westminster July 16. 1785

have received your two last Letters to Congress and Mr Van Berkel and have observed your Directions. The Contents have filled my Head with Speculations. I long to Spend an Evening with you, in weighing all the Circumstances discovering the Views and Motives, and conjecturing into Futurity. I wish I dared trust to Paper my Solitary Lucubrations upon it, but it would be too dangerous. Does it indicate a Change of System? a Determination to observe a Neutrality? or &c &c.

yours as usual
