Thomas Barclay to John Adams

1 Oct. 1785

Dear Sir Paris 1. October 1785

I have finish’d your account Curr. with the United states and shall send you a Copy of it by Next post—Of the 28<h> past I Valued on You No. 1 fav. of Mr. Grand £120 and the 29h No. 2 fav. Mr. Darcel—100 which please to honour and Apply to the Debt of the United states

You will see by the Inclosed Note from M. Jefferson what his sentiments are about the Manner of drawing—

I wrote to M Grand a few days ago that I shou’d have occasion to Value in you in the Course of a Month for twelve or fifteen hundred pounds Sterling, and desired to know whether he wou’d Negociate the Bills, one of his people Called the Next Day and proposed that I wou’d write to you to Remit the Money here—to which I reply’d, that I wou’d not—that I was at No loss to pass the bills, and only offerd them to him, because he did the other public business here

I shall have the pleasure to write to You Next post, and in the Mean time remain / Dear sir / Your Most obed. Servant

Thos Barclay
