Summary Pickering discusses Edmund Randolph's written vindication following his forced resignation from the office of Secretary of State. Fauchet's letter, which had allegedly exposed Randolph's disloyalty to Washington, will be translated by George Taylor although Pickering wants to see Hamilton's translation also in order to get a sense of the true meaning of the letter.
