4137. JONES (John Paul), Prize money.

—I consider Captain Jones as agent from the
citizens of the United States, interested in the
prizes taken in Europe under his command, and
that he is properly authorized to receive the
money due to them, having given good security
to transmit it to the treasury office of the United
States, whence it will be distributed, under the
care of Congress, to the officers and crews
originally entitled, or to their representatives.—
To M. de Castries. Washington ed. i, 361.
(P. 1785)
