1. JQA 's “2”s and “4”s are easily confused, causing JA , in his docketing of this letter and in his letter to AA , 28 March, below, to read “March 14.” The same error appears in JQA, Diary , 1:174, note 1, under “Martius. 1783.” JQA 's statement in his Diary entry at that { 105 } point that he reached Hamburg on 10 March, and his statement in the present letter that he had arrived “last evening,” point to 12 March as the correct date.
