The Duc de La Vauguyon to John Adams: A Translation

I had proposed, sir, to spend a few days in Amsterdam at the end of this week, but I am absolutely obliged to remain here and will have the honor of informing you of the reasons. In the meantime, I want very much to speak with you and pray that you would come to The Hague unless you are indispensibly detained at Amsterdam.1
{ 381 }

[salute] Receive, sir, a new assurance of the inviolable sentiments of attachment and consideration with which I have the honor of being your very humble and very obedient servant.

[signed] Le Duc De La vauguyon
1. JA went to The Hague on the morning of 4 April and returned on the 6th (Dumas to Robert R. Livingston, 4 April, Wharton, ed., Dipl. Corr. Amer. Rev., 5:292–293).
