2611. ENGLAND, American antagonism.—

The war between France and England
seems to be producing an effect not
contemplated. All the old spirit of 1776, rekindling
the newspapers from Boston to
Charleston, proves this; and even the monocrat
papers are obliged to publish the most
furious philippics against England. A French
frigate took a British prize off the capes of
Delaware the other day, and sent her up here
[Philadelphia]. Upon her coming into sight,
thousands and thousands of the yeomanry of
the city crowded and covered the wharves.
Never before was such a crowd seen there;
and when the British colors were seen reversed,
and the French flying above them,
they burst into peals of exultation.
To James Monroe. Washington ed. iii, 548. Ford ed., vi, 238.
