To C. W. F. Dumas

[salute] Sir

I returned last night to Leyden, and would Set off this morning for the Hague, if particular Reasons did not oppose.
{ 253 }
Having Something, a little interesting to communicate to you, I should be very much obliged to you, if you could come here to morrow morning. I should be glad of your answer this Evening, because if any thing makes it inconvenient to you to come here, I will go to the Hague, and be with you by Noon. It would be much better however for you to come here if you can.1

[salute] Adieu.

[signed] J. Adams
Tr (PCC, No. 101, I, f. 176)
