3184. FRANCE, Union with.—

We wish
to omit no opportunity of convincing [the
French nation] how cordially we desire the
closest union with them. Mutual good offices,
mutual affection, and similar principles
of government seem to have destined the two
peoples for the most intimate communion,
and even for a complete exchange of citizenship
among the individuals composing them.—
To Gouverneur Morris. Ford ed., vi, 151.
(Pa., Dec. 1792)
