4077. JAY TREATY, Dissatisfaction with.—[continued].

A very slight notice of
[the Jay treaty] sufficed to decide my mind
against it. I am not satisfied we should not
be better without treaties with any nation.
But I am satisfied we should be better without
such as this. The public dissatisfaction,
too, and dissension it is likely to produce,
are serious evils.—
To H. Tazewell. Washington ed. iv, 120. Ford ed., vii, 30.
(M. Sep. 1795)
