3126. FRANCE, Commerce with.—[further continued].

With respect to the reformation
of the unfriendly restrictions on
our commerce and navigation, we cannot be
too pressing for its attainment, as every
day's continuance gives it additional firmness,
and endangers its taking root in their habits
and constitution. Indeed, I think the French
government should be told, that as soon as
they are in a condition to act, if they do not
revoke the late innovations, we must lay additional
and equivalent burthens on French
by name.—
To Gouverneur Morris. Washington ed. iii, 489. Ford ed., vi, 131.
(Nov. 1792)
