3. Eliphalet Brush is repeatedly mentioned as a member of the growing American circle in Amsterdam in JQA's Diary, 10 June
, and was present at the Fourth of July celebration held there this year. He brought JA's dispatches for Congress in the Gates
and is the only passenger noted in the Boston Gazette's
account of the arrival of that vessel (24 Sept., p. 3, col. 1). The Gazette
identifies him as “of the State of New York.” Brush called on AA and furnished her with much-wanted family news; see AA to JA, 29 Sept.
