Summary:
Transmits Grenville's reply (August 1). Feels that this reply "affords scope for delay; much will depend on the good faith with which the business may be conducted..." Present Administration seems quite friendly to U.S. Grenville has never been less than candid in his conversations. Feels that both nations want to reach understanding, but prejudices as well as national interests may stand in way of complete agreement. Hopes that moderation and prudence will have their way.
