Summary:
Recapitulates the 9th article of the confederacy. Recommends the reconsideration of this proviso, the giving additional powers to Congress. Thinks the States would comply with such recommendations as would impose heavy duties upon British shipping, or even to prohibit them. Thinks there will be no commercial treaty until England is made to feel its necessity. Arguments of the English in defence of their system. How met by the Americans. Visits of official persons, their sayings. Interview with Lord Hood, conversation. Parties reserved upon American affairs; afraid of each other. Unanimity in American measures which will make them feel, can alone produce a fair treaty of commerce.
