1. JA wrote two additional letters to the Staphorsts on this date, both LbC , Adams Papers. The first requested that the firm transmit a letter from Tristram Dalton to William Armstrong that Dalton had enclosed in his to JA of 25 May, above, and if he could be found, provide him with assistance. The letter is canceled and likely was not sent, perhaps because JA had received Dalton's letter of 19 July, above, indicating that Armstrong had escaped. The second letter requested that the firm provide assistance to Silas Talbot and Josiah Haynes, who were imprisoned at Plymouth's Mill Prison.
