3251. FREE TRADE, Confederation Congress and.—

Congress had, in the year
1784, made up their minds as to the system of
commercial principles they wished to pursue.
These were very free. They proposed them to
all the powers of Europe. All declined except
Prussia. To this general opposition they
may now find it necessary to present a very
different general system to which their treaties
will form cases of exception.—
To C. W. F. Dumas. Washington ed. ii, 321.
(P. 1787)
