John Jay to John Adams

2 Nov. 1785

Dr: Sir New York 2d. November 1785

Mr: Houdon the celebrated Statuary of Paris, who has taken a Bust of General Washington, and is to make his Statue for Virginia, and perhaps another for the United States is the Bearer of this.—

His Character as an Artist being high, and in other Respects as far as I can learn unexceptionable, I take the Liberty of introducing him to you. Not understanding English, he will be much a Stranger in London and your friendly Offices of course will be the more acceptable and grateful to him.—

I am Dr: Sir with great Esteem & Regard / Your most obt. & very hble: Servt.

John Jay—
