With this letter, read in Congress on 1 Aug., John Adams sent copies of the London
and the London Morning Post
. The newspapers, which he promised to send regularly and had received from Edmé Jacques
Genet (see JA
to Genet, 22 March
, note 1, below), represented the views of the opposition and the ministry respectively.
He also commented on the disputes between the various factions in Great Britain, a
probable delay in the sailing of Rochambeau's army, and Lafayette's return to America.
