Summary:
Adams believes it more and more his opinion that the Utopian procedure -that they manage their exportation themselves rather than letting foreigners come and deal in it, that they can better understand the art of navigation - is the best American policy. other comments: on disproportionate duties; commissioners to negotiate or carry out treaties with Spain and France will preserve peace; according to Pitt's budget England will persevere in her course towards America i.e., to wage a new war and to keep western posts. Only resource to export own produce and encourage manufactures.
