|Gentlemen.||The Hague 27 December 1795.|
I have the honor to enclose a letter, this day received from my Brother in London.
It gives me great satisfaction to hear, that a remittance has arrived from America, which enables you to advertise the payment of the Interest, that will fall due on the first of next month on behalf of the United States.
Your letter mentions also your intention to acquaint Mr: Monroe the impossibility of complying with his request, that you would draw upon him for the amount of the Specie in his hands, which he is endeavoring to remit to you. I shall be obliged to you for information, as to the actual rate of Exchange between Amsterdam & Paris for Specie, independent of the paper currency of France.
I am &ca:
LbC (CtHi: Wolcott Papers), enclosure in TBA to Oliver Wolcott, 6 Jan. 1796; internal address: “T. B Adams to Messrs: Willink van Staphorst & Hubbard.”
