2614. ENGLAND, Bonaparte and.—

events which have taken place in France have
lessened in the American mind the motives
of interest which it felt in that Revolution,
and its amity towards that country now rests
on its love of peace and commerce. We see,
at the same time, with great concern, the position
in which Great Britain is placed, and
should be sincerely afflicted were any disaster
to deprive mankind of the benefit of such a
bulwark against the torrent which has for
some time been bearing down all before it.
But her power and powers at sea seem to
render everything safe in the end.—
To Sir John Sinclair. Washington ed. iv, 491.
(W. June. 1803)
