Just a Line, by our venerable Friend, President Laurens, with whom your Communions
will be sweet.2
Pray let me know if Mr Jay is coming to Paris, or come. The last Victory of Rodney,
to whom Heaven grants them to shew that it dispizes them, has restored the national
Delirium, in all its Effervescence. We shall have no Peace I suppose, in Consequence.
War then! War? Yet I sigh for Peace as much, as a Dutchman.
