3222. FREDERICK THE GREAT, Treaty with.—

Without urging, we [201] sounded
the ministers of the several European nations
at the Court of Versailles, on their dispositions
towards mutual commerce, and the expediency
of encouraging it by the protection of a treaty.
Old Frederick, of Prussia, met us cordially and
without hesitation, and appointing the Baron
de Thulemeyer, his minister at the Hague, to
negotiate with us, we communicated to him
our projét, which, with little alteration by
the King was soon concluded.—
