3875. IMPRESSMENT, Treaty of Peace and.—[continued].

I presume that, having
spared to the pride of England her formal
acknowledgment of the atrocity of impress
ment in an article of the treaty, she will concur
in a convention for relinquishing it.
Without this, she must understand that the
present is but a truce, determinable on the
first act of impressment of an American
citizen, committed by an officer of hers.—
To President Madison. Washington ed. vi, 453. Ford ed., ix, 512.
(M. March. 1815)
