The Commissioners to Francis Coffyn

Passy, 26 June 1778. printed: JA, Diary and Autobiography, 4:142–143. The Commissioners left to Coffyn's judgment the amount to be paid on a surgeon's bill, approved his proposal to transmit to America intelligence that he had obtained, and advised him either to send the unemployed sailors to serve on the frigates at Brest and Nantes or to retain them at Dunkirk to join the Alliance. Finally Coffyn was directed to execute the bond for the Alliance and to deliver the enclosed commission and instructions to Amiel.
