John Thaxter wrote this letter during John Adams' absence at Paris. It contains an
English translation of a resolution that the States General adopted on 2 July, which
was printed in Dutch newspapers, including the Gazette de Leyde of 6 July. The States General resolved that it was unaware of any basis for the charges
made against the Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel by members of the regency of Amsterdam
or anyone else. The States General called on the various provinces to enact regulations
to restrain those who would make unsubstantiated charges against the Duke.
