. Not found. In her letter to JA
of 7 April
, above, AA
noted receiving JA
's letters of 4 Dec.
1782, and 29 Jan.
, both above; JA
's announcement in those letters of his request to Congress to resign his post apparently
to ask Lee whether Congress would honor JA
's request. JA
had directed AA
on 4 Feb.
, above, to make such an enquiry, but AA
did not receive this letter until 6 May (AA
, 7 May
, below). AA
probably wrote to Lee, whom she had met in Sept. 1780 (vol. 3:406
), because James Lovell had left Congress and Elbridge Gerry had not yet arrived there
