About this Item

Ongoing political maneuvers regarding privateers, the treatment of neutral vessels and of ships of war, and Mr. Jay's negotiations. A message from Secretary of State Timothy Pickering is included in which Pickering complains of Adet's having published a previous note that would have been more "properly addressed to [the U.S.] Government, to which alone pertained the right of communicating it in such time and manner as it should think fit, to the citizens of the United States." 8vo signed in 4s (20 cm, 7.9"). 42 pp. ESTC W21390; Evans 30442; not in Sabin.
