3. JA made a verbatim transcript of this and the preceding four paragraphs and enclosed it in a letter of 4 April to Sartine (Arch. de la Marine, Paris
, Campagnes B4, vol. 182), to which there are apparently two replies (both Adams Papers
). In the first, which is dated 5 April and does not mention the letter of the 4th, Sartine wrote in his own hand that he already had the information supplied by JA, but thanked him for his consideration. The second letter, dated 15 April and in a clerk's hand, mentions the letter of the 4th, and thanks JA for the information that he has provided.
