Circulars with enclosures include a letter of [John?] Paul Jones (1747-1792) informing Jay that Algeria has declared war on the United States. This accompanies a letter of DeSoulanges regarding the Algerian navy. There is also a copy of a John Adams (1735-1826) letter mentioning a possible treaty with Portugal.
Another circular contains a series of items relating to tobacco trade and its competition with France. There is a Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) letter discussing the tobacco trade, a resolution, and a contract negotiated by Robert Morris (1734-1806). This contract bears a note by Le Couteulx & Company regarding the Treaty of Paris.
One circular concerns slaves taken by the British during the American Revolution. A xerox copy lists those seized by the British (the original is in the Connecticut papers).
There is also a circular including extracts of letters by John Adams discussing an attempt in England to print counterfeit North Carolina and South Carolina money. The counterfeiter, Robert [Moor?], was arrested.
This collection contains a partially printed Jay document authorizing Samuel Hobbs' ship _Fame_ as a privateer in Boston, 1779. The document is also signed John Avery (1739-1806) and Charles Thomson (1729-1824).
A three-page, autograph manuscript, apparently a message to the New York Legislature from Jay as governor of New York, discusses maritime grievances with France in 1798. It is apparently in Jay's hand and signed by him.
