Per conversation with de Pinto, Portugal desires a Consul or Ambassador be sent to Lisbon; Carmarthen "at work" on an answer to Adams's memorial about the posts; Eden predicts a treaty of commerce with the United States within two years; doubts the success of Eden in negotiating a treaty with France; Britain "would now crouch to France for the sake of being insolent to us." Eden's appointment to Versailles: to appease the wrath at Versailles, and to keep "up a mysterious delusive hope in the English nation." Ministry may be afraid of commercial speculations between France and Ireland.
