4138. JONES (John Paul), Prize money. [continued].

I have had the honor of enclosing to Mr. Jay, Commodore Jones's receipts
for one hundred and eighty-one thousand
and thirty-nine livres, one sol and ten deniers,
prize money, which (after deducting his own
proportion) he is to remit to you, for the officers
and soldiers who were under his command. I
take the liberty of suggesting whether the expense
and risk of double remittances might not
be saved, by ordering it into the hands of Mr.
Grand, immediately, for the purposes of the
Treasury in Europe, while you could make provision
at home for the officers and soldiers,
whose demands will come in so slowly, as to
leave the use of a great proportion of this
money for a considerable time, and some of it
forever. We could, then, immediately quiet
the French officers.—
To the Treasury Commissioners. Washington ed. i, 522.
