Description
Memoranda of a conference with Lord Shelburne, in which he related his conversation with [John] Adams at Harlem, showing the necessity of an acknowledgment of the independence of the United States; confirming what he had said before leaving London; he advised an immediate and full acknowledgment; both he and Adams were of the opinion that the bill for enabling the King to make peace would be of no effect with regard to America; the latter country was well prepared to continue the war; Adams spoke of Digges's account of his interview as a misrepresentation; Laurens averred his own caution as to secrecy in the proceedings.
