Political gossip: France appears disposed to peace; England seems ready to go to war. Ministers and court diplomacy. Position of the United States if war breaks out: how to preserve neutrality? If England, whatever her protestations of peace with the United States are now, begins to gain in a war, it is likely that she will attack America. Holland in dismal situation, a "living warning to the United States."
