Abstract:

This collection of papers is made up mostly of circulars sent by Jay, as Secretary of Foreign Affairs, to the Governor of Connecticut, for 1785 to 1788. These circulars, signed by Jay, were not written in his hand. Many of the circulars relay letters or extracts of letters by other persons and inform the recipients of current affairs and political issues. Unfortunately, some of the circulars only state their subject and the enclosure elaborating on the issues are missing.

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.
