7666. ROGUES, Diplomacy and.—

part of the country [Virginia] is in considerable
fermentation on what they suspect to be a
recent roguery of this kind. They say that
while all hands were below deck mending sails,
splicing ropes, and every one at his own business,
and the captain in his cabin attending to
his log-book and chart, a rogue of a pilot has
run them into an enemy's port. But metaphor
apart, there is much dissatisfaction with Mr.
Jay and his treaty.—
To Mann Page. Washington ed. iv, 120. Ford ed., vii, 25.
(M. Aug. 1795)
