71. ADAMS (John), George III. and.—

The sentiments you expressed [in your address
on presentation to the King] were such
as were entertained in America till the commercial
proclamation, and such as
again return were a rational conduct to be
adopted by Great Britain. I think, therefore,
you by no means compromised yourself, or
our country, nor expressed more than it
would be our interest to encourage, if they
were disposed to meet us.—
To John Adams. Washington ed. i, 436.
(P. Sep. 1785)
