2620. ENGLAND, Commerce with.—[further continued] .

With respect to a commercial
treaty with this country, be assured that the government not only has it not in
contemplation at present to make any, but that
they do not conceive that any circumstances
will arise which shall render it expedient for
them to have any political connection with us.
They think we shall be glad of their commerce
on their own terms.—
To Richard Henry Lee. Washington ed. i, 541. Ford ed., iv, 206.
(L. April. 1786)
