. In a letter to Joseph Gardoqui & Sons of 20 Aug., Dana acknowledged receiving a letter
from the firm to JA
and indicated that he had paid the enclosed bill (MHi
: Francis Dana Letterbook). The last known letter to JA
from Joseph Gardoqui & Sons was of 10 June
(above), but it is unlikely that Dana refers to that letter, since in his letter
he refers to a letter of 5 Aug. directed to him. If that is the case then neither
the letter nor the memorandum referred to by Dana has been found, but a partial account
's expenses for the period from Dec. 1779 to 10 June 1782 indicates that a bill from
Joseph Gardoqui & Sons for 928L was paid on 19 Aug. 1780 (MH-H
: Schaffner Collection).
