3298. FRIENDSHIP WITH ENGLAND, Cultivation of.—

As to the duties of
your office [Minister to England], I shall only
express a desire that they be constantly exercised
in that spirit of sincere friendship which
we bear to the English nation, and that in all
transactions with the minister, his good dispositions
be conciliated by whatever in language
or attentions may tend to that effect.—
To Thomas Pinckney. Washington ed. iii, 441. Ford ed., vi, 75.
(Pa., 1792)
