Description
He regretted to hear of Laurens's illness at Nantes; has learned from a reliable quarter that the British Cabinet are seriously bent on a general peace, and that negotiations are so far advanced that it will take place in the course of the winter; he advises against America's entering the armed neutrality, as that would involve her in all the quarrels of Europe; it appears that South Carolina passed an act authorising Congress to lay a tax on imports; gives his reasons for recommending in preference a tax on exports; the southern states will soon be relieved from everything except the plundering by small vessels from New York.
