6028. OCEAN, Claimed by England.—[further continued].

Ever since the rupture
of the treaty of Amiens, the object of Great
Britain has visibly been the permanent conquest
of the ocean, and levying a tribute on
every vessel she permits to sail on it, as the
Barbary powers do on the Mediterranean,
which they call their sea.—
To William Short. Washington ed. vi, 128.
(M. June. 1813)
See Embargo and Impressment.
