These expcr.ses were incurred at Paris,
at the ery time when Mr.'Adams is sup
posed, in a previous and subsequent item
of the account, to be travelling back to
St. Petersburg; but the tfarra o these
items are carefully omitted in the report
to Congress. Had they been cjtren, it

never performed, as much as Mr. Bayard,

give the money, and .Mr. Adams to keep
it) in despite of the authority of Congress,
and without an appropriation, although
the Constitution says expressly, no mo
ney shall be drawn from the Treasury
but in consequence of appropriations made
by law," &c. . - .
Mr. Adams retained the money snd re
ceived the credit, although no appropris
tion has been made to this day. Thus it
was, that he realized an outfit of 9,000
dollars, when spent upon the peace mis
sion. The peace mission commenced
the 29:h of April, 1813, and ended the
27th of February, 1815, having continued
one year and ten months. Mr. Adams
was then appointed Minister to Great
Britain "d his mission commenced 21th
February. 1815. Upon this appointments
he claimed another outfit of 9,000 dollars.

ister who had been actually Jilted cut, and
was already in a foreign country, upon
transfer from one court to another. But it
was finally derided that this' law did not
bar an outfit in such a case, and Mr,
Adams received another 9.000 dollars on
being transferred from Ghent to London.
Thus did he receive, within two years.
two outfits of 9,000 dollars each, making
It has been said, that during the Ghent
mission, Mr. Adams charged and received
a double salary ; viz. 9,000 dollara per
year as Minister to Ghent, and 9,000 dol
