Browsing: Papers of John Adams, Volume 12


This foot note contained in document ADMS-06-12-02-0051
3. On 23 Nov., JA wrote to Jean de Neufville & Fils requesting that the firm give John Thaxter any obligations signed by JA that had not yet been issued to investors ( LbC , Adams Papers). JA ’s request may have been prompted by his desire to obtain the money raised by the loan for distribution to escaped prisoners and other Americans seeking his aid. He probably also wanted to clean up the loose ends of the troublesome and grossly undersubscribed loan.
