5730. NAVIGATION, Protection of.—[further continued].

The determination of the
British cabinet to make no equal treaty with
us, confirms me in the opinion expressed in
your letter that the United States must pass
a navigation act against Great Britain, and
load her manufactures with duties so as to
give a preference to those of other countries;
and I hope our Assemblies will wait no
longer, but transfer such a power to Congress,
at the sessions of this fall.—
To John Adams. Washington ed. i, 486.
