Recipient: Schweighauser, John Daniel
[dateline] Passy Jany 4. 1779
We are honoured with yours <of>
without a date.1
We wrote you on the Second of this Month2
to which We refer. We have written to Mr. Gilbank several Times that We could furnish
him with no more Money, and that We should protest his Bills. If he will not believe
Us, When the Bills arrive if they ever do, which We hope they will not, our <Protest>
Refusal and the consequent Protest Will Convince him. We have been trifled with too
much by that Gentleman, and hope We shall be so no more.
We have made the most pressing application in our Power to <Mr. De Sartine,> the Ministry, for the Convoy, and hope to suceed, but have not yet an Answer. We
approve of [y]our Tenderness to the Prisoners. We wish to hear whether you have recovered the Cargoe
of the Therese.
