3416. GENET, Correspondence with.—

We have kept the correspondence with Genet
merely personal, convinced his nation will disapprove
him. To them we have with the utmost
assiduity given every proof of inviolate
attachment. [211]
To Thomas Pinckney. Washington ed. iv, 86.
(G. Nov. 1793)


Marshall, in his Life of Washington says: “The
partiality for France that was conspicuous through
the whole of the correspondence, detracted nothing
from its merit in the opinion of the friends of the Administration,
because, however decided their determination
to support their own Government in any
controversy with any nation whatever, they felt all
the partialities for that Republic which the correspondence
expressed. The hostility of his [Jefferson's] enemies, therefore, was, for a time, considerably
lessened, without a corresponding diminution of
the attachment of his friends.”—Editor.
