Most especially is it necessary to get rid of the
debt to the officers. Their connections at Court
are such as to excite very unfavourable feelings
there against us, and some very hard things
have been said (particularly in the Assemblée
des Notables) on the prospect relative to our
debts. The payment of the interest to the officers
would have kept them quiet; but there
are two years now due to them. I dare not
draw for it without instructions.—
To John Adams. Washington ed. ii, 181.
