10882 women a half dozen in droves with their hoes

10883 churches, convents, gentlemen's seats

10884 very magnificent.

10885 From perils of the sea, intrigues, business wangles

10886 rural improvements are brought down to the water's

10887 edge

10888 muddy water, grand seats, beautiful groves

10889 a number of vessels in the river land, cattle, horses after

10890 so long a journey

10891 at Bordeaux, at Blaye

10892 de lonh

10893 First dish was a fine french soup then boiled meat

10894 lights of calf one way and liver another

10895 bread very fine and fine salad the

10896 raisins are most delicious

10897 none of us understood french none of them english

10898 on quarter deck I was struck with the hens

10899 capons cocks in their coops

10900 Saluted a small town called Blaye

10901 with the INdependent salute

10902 i.e. 13 for the colonies

10903 All the gentlemen agreed Dr Franklin

10904 had been rec'd by the King with great pomp

10905 and a treaty concluded

10906 there are 4 sorts: Château Margaux, Haute Brion, Lafitte

10907 and Latour

10908 fish and bean salad, claret, champagne

10909 to see the new comédie and, after, the opera

10910 dancing very cheerful (our

10911 American theatre not then even in contemplation)

10912 Trompette, work of Vauban

10913 Banished in Louis XVth's time for working with Malesherbes

10914 I concluded there was a form of sincerity in it

10915 decorated with compliments

10916 saw 'Les deux avares'.

10917 Tucker tho' not polished

10918 was an energetic and successful commander

10919 Lights in the garden and an Inscription

10921 Their eagerness to sell a knife was as great as that

10922 of some persons I have seen to get offices

10923 fields of grass, vineyards, castles

10924 yet every place swarms with beggars

10925 Rue Richelieu, Hôtel de Valois

10926 then Basse Cour, had been Hôtel Valentinois

10927 Money in Mr Schweighauser's hands

10928 signed; Franklin

10929 Lee

10930 Adams

10931 To J. Williams:

10932 abstain from further expenditure

10933 and close your accounts

10934 Mr Beaumarchais, another of Mr Deane's friends.

10935 Dined that day with Madame Helvetius

10936 to the Long Champ where all carriages of Paris were paraded

10937 As descent modest and regular

10938 a family as ever I saw in France

10939 Among whom was M. Condorcet his face white as a sheet

10940 of paper

10941 Franklin, Deane, Bancroft are friends

10942 never was before I came here

10943 a letter book

10944 a minute book

10945 an account book

10946 Mr Deane lived expensively. Dr Franklin

10947 Great wit, great humourist, great politician, the Lees

10948 are all virtuous men, If

10949 there had been letters, minutes, accounts, Mr Lee

10950 had not seen them

10951 In first box near the celebrated Voltaire

10957 necessary

10958 The King's bed chamber where he was dressing

10959 one putting on his sword, one his coat

10960 I accordingly wrote to Sam Adams:

10961 Enormous

10962 sums have been expended, no book of

10963 accounts, no documents wherefrom

10964 able to learn what has been rec'd in America

10965 Wrong in having three commissioners one is enough

10966 in leaving salaries at uncertainty

10967 in mingling public minister and commercial agent

10968 Mr Deane never succeeded in throwing much light on

10969 his mode of doing business in France.

10970 Many other qualities I cd/ not distinguish from virtues

10971 His Majesty ate like a King, solid beef

10972 and other things in proportion

10973 Offer to make 200 peers (in America)

10974 To the dwelling of Mme du Barry

10984 Laws of the Visigoths and Justinian still in use in Galicia

10985 13 mules 2 muletiers arriving Corunna at 7

10986 pork of this country excellent and delicious

10987 also bacon, Chief Justice informs me that much of it

10988 is fattened on chestnuts and upon indian corn

10989 other pork is they say fattened on vipers

10990 possible imports to Spain:
[Page 374]
10991 grain of all sorts pitch turpentine timber,

10992 salt fish, spermaceti and rice.

10993 Tobacco they have from their colonies

10994 as also indigo

10995 of the King's tobacco they take 10 millions weight per annum

10996 Saw ladies take chocolate in Spanish fashion

10997 dined on board la Belle Poule

10998 Galicia, no floor but ground trodden to mire by

10999 men hogs horses and mules

11000 no chimney 1/2 way as you ascend to the chamber

11001 was a stage covered with straw

11002 on which lay a fattening hog

11003 above, corn was hung on sticks and on slit work

11004 in one corner a bin full of rape seed or culzar

11005 in the other a bin full of oats

11006 among which slept better than since my arrival

11007 in Spain

11008 In general the mountains covered with furze

11009 scarce an elm oak or other tree

11010 O'Brien afterward sent me a minced pie and a meat pie

11011 at St James Campostella and 2 bottles of Frontenac wine

11012 nothing rich but the churches, nothing fat but the clergy

11013 NO symptoms of commerce or even of internal traffic

11014 Between Galice and Leon 1780

11015 all of colour made of black sheep's wool undyed

11016 the river Valcaire between two rows of mountains

11017 not a decent house since Corunna

11018 4. Tuesday, clean bed, no fleas for the first time in Spain

11019 at Astorga

11041 Vergennes might suppose that I in naiveté

11042 wd/ send him my instructions

11043 My determination to insist on the fisheries

11044 (in fact John saved cod to Baastun)

11045 I was not clear that I suspected his motives

11046 U.S. at liberty to negotiate commerce, as peace

11047 they intended to keep us in stew with England

11048 for as long as possible after the peace, as was Effected

11120 For my part thought that Americans [Image]

11121 Had been embroiled in European wars long enough

11122 easy to see that

11123 France and England wd/ try to embroil us OBvious

11124 that all powers of Europe will be continually at manoeuvre

11125 to work us into their real or imaginary balances

11126 of power; J. A. 1782 FISHERIES

11128 objects of these men of high life

11129 France wd/ never

11130 send that money (send any of it) to England
[Page 378]
11131 whereas we getting money from Portugal

11132 must spend it in London, considered

11133 their attack on me an attack on the fisheries.

11134 'If I have not' sez I 'been mistaken

11135 in the policy of France from my first observation

11136 of it to this hour, they have been as averse to

11137 other powers acknowledging our independence

11138 as you have been.'

11139 'GOD!'

11140 sez he (Oswald) 'Now I see it.

11141 I will write home at once on this subject'

11142 To exempt fishermen husbandmen merchants

11143 as much as possible from evils of future wars

11144 Dr Franklin (a nice lesson any how)

11154 passages in the Connecticut constitution

11155 (at which point Mr Eliot left us)

11156 Mr Vaughn said etc/ that he saw

11157 'But' sez he 'you can not blame us endeavouring

11158 to carry this point to market

11159 and get something by it'

11184 England

11185 had now stronger reason to cultivate Holland

11188 and commerce be opened, laws of Gt Britain on
