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.
