John Jay to John Adams

26 Aug. 1785

Dear sir, Office for foreign Affairs 26th. August 1785.

It gives me pleasure to inform you that your Letters of the 2d. 6th. and 17th. June last have been received, and were this Day laid before Congress, who I am persuaded will read them with as much Satisfaction as I have done. You have been in a Situation that required much Circumspection—I think you have acquitted yourself in a manner that does you Honor. The Vessel that is to carry this Sails in the morning, so that at present I can only add my best Wishes, and assure you, that I am, with sincere and great Esteem, and Regard, / Dear Sir, / Your most obedient / Servant,

John Jay
