792. BEAUMARCHAIS (M.), Claim of.—

I hear that Mr. Beaumarchais means to
make himself heard, if the memorial which he
sends by an agent in the present packet is not
attended to as he thinks it ought to be. He
called on me with it and desired me to recommend
his case to a decision, and to note in
my dispatch that it was the first time he had
spoken to me on the subject. This is true, it
being the first time I ever saw him; but my
recommendations would be as displaced as unnecessary.
I assured him Congress would do
in that business what justice should require,
and their means enabled them.—
To John Jay. Washington ed. ii, 232.
(P. 1787)
