Compliments to B. The minister's answer to the Embassador is polite and cautious and if sincere will demand Jays thanks and acknowledgment.

Acknowledgment of friendly interpretations of minister; assurance of gratitude and its influence which every American owes to the first friend and steadfast ally of the United States.
