About this title


Paris, May 8ih, 1789. My Dear Sir, In the course of a long and tempestuous passage over the A tlantic, at a season when the greatest part of the twenty-four hours was clothed in darkness, I had very many moments for meditatipn. The country I had left behind me occupied by far the greater part of them. More endeared as it was farther removed, I daily feh more sensibly my attachment to that land where I first had existence. Our public affairs very frequently pressed into my mind, when the howling of the winds would not permit repose ;and in thinking of my country, and my friends, I insensibly forgot my own situation. Enclosed you have a paper marked American Finances, which is partly the result of my maritime meditations; but I incline to think, that you would not have been troubled with them, if circumstances had not retraced the ideas since my arrival. In effect, it has frequently happened, that, while sitting with Mr Jefferson, our conversation turned on that subject. He, who also feels ardently for the welfare of A merica, induced me, without intending it, to make the sketch above mentioned.
