[dateline] Paris, 20 March 1780
With this letter, read in Congress on 1 Aug., John Adams sent copies of the London General Advertiser
and the London Morning Post
. The newspapers, which he promised to send regularly and had received from Edmé Jacques Genet (see JA to Genet, 22 March
, note 1, below), represented the views of the opposition and the ministry respectively. He also commented on the disputes between the various factions in Great Britain, a probable delay in the sailing of Rochambeau's army, and Lafayette's return to America.
