Summary:
Changes since '83, favorable disposition at that period to America. Since then commerce has reverted to its old channels. The English boast that commerce can flow in no other. Opinions decided in favor of the navigation acts; causes of this opinion. England has commenced commercial hostilities, originating in jealousy. They consider us as dangerous rivals; if a commercial war is to be waged, advises temperance and circumspection. Would not advise the struggle if there were any prospect of justice without it. No answer Carmarthen; will not press for one.
