7123. QUAKERS, English attachments of.—

An attempt has been made to get the
Quakers to come forward with a petition
[against war with France], to aid with the
weight of their body the feeble band of peace.
They have, with some effort, got a petition
signed by a few of their society; the main body
of their society refuse it. M'Lay's peace motion
in the Assembly of Pennsylvania was rejected
with an unanimity of the Quaker vote, and it
seems to be well understood, that their attachment
to England is stronger than to their
principles or their country. The Revolutionary
war was a proof of this.—
