1. Jenings is replying to JA's letter of 8 July (Adams Papers), under cover of which, according to the next to last paragraph of this letter, JA had sent the first four parts of his reworking of Thomas Pownall's Memorial, London, 1780. The fifth and final part was presumably enclosed with JA's letter of 14 July (above), for Jenings acknowledged its arrival in his reply to that letter of 21 July (below). For the composition and publication of JA's revision, see A Translation of Thomas Pownall's Memorial, 19 April – [ca 14 July] (above).
