3125. FRANCE, Commerce with.—[further continued] .

I am happy to learn that the [people of Alexandria, Va.] have felt a
benefit from the encouragements to our commerce,
which have been given by an allied
nation. But truth and candor oblige me, at
the same time, to declare you are indebted
for these encouragements solely to the
friendly dispositions of that nation, which
has shown itself ready on every occasion to
adopt all arrangements which might strengthen
our ties of mutual interest and friendship.—
