[dateline] The Hague, 26  February 1782
In a letter of this same day,1
which I have already mailed, I forgot to include some essential news. President van
den Santheuvel’s report made to the high mightinesses of your last requisition, was
taken ad referendum
on the last day of the Dutch assembly, by all cities of this province. We will see
what will come of it. The states will reconvene a week from tomorrow.
[salute] In haste, Sir, your very humble and very obedient servant,
