3187. FRANCE, War with England.—

How the mighty duel is to end between Great
Britain and France, is a momentous question.
The sea which divides them makes it a game
of chance; but it is narrow, and all the
chances are not on one side. Should they
make peace, still our fate is problematical.—
To Horatio Gates. Washington ed. iv, 213. Ford ed., vii, 204.
(Pa., Feb. 1798)
