Summary:
CIPHER Anxious to convey "the impossibility of doing anything satisfactory with this nation." And so will write things which Congress should know but keep secret. Character of the King, of Pitt, and other statesmen. Stocks high and nation in high spirits. General opinion is that an act of Parliament will place the United States on the footing of the most favored nation "and then let things take their course." Peace between France and England will probably be maintained until Britain has enough money to go to war again. "Present advantage is all they aim at, present evil is all they hope to shun." British do not fear an encounter about the evacuation of posts. Adams will be treated civilly but will not be answered. "I am at the end of my tether."
