1. This is the first extant letter from Gardoqui & Sons since that of 15 March (above), although letters by JA of 14 and 18 May (both LbC's , Adams Papers) indicate that he also received letters from the firm dated 8 April and 6 May. The latter probably arrived on 17 May and enclosed letters from AA to JA of 1 March and to JQA and John Thaxter of 2 March ( Adams Family Correspondence , 3:292–294, 351–353). JA had last written to Gardoqui & Sons on 16 March ( LbC , Adams Papers) to request that they keep him informed of the arrival of vessels from America and news of John Jay and William Carmichael.
