1138. CAPTIVES, Failure to Release.—

The demands of Algiers for the ransom of our
prisoners, and also for peace, are so infinitely
beyond our instructions that we must refer the
matter back to Congress. [69] To Wm. Carmichael. Washington ed. i, 580.
(P. 1786)


Congress sent a Mr. Lambe to Europe with instructions
respecting Algiers. Jefferson and Adams
made him their agent to visit Algiers, but his mission
resulted in failure. Referring to it, Jefferson
wrote to Monroe (i, 606 [1786]. Ford ed., iv, 264) that, “an angel sent on this business, and so much
limited in his terms, could have done nothing”.——Editor.
