First Presidential message to Congress from Washington (Jefferson as Sec'y of State), the official statement concerning the Genet affair, published by order of the House of Representatives. activities in that capacity embroiled the United States and France in a diplomatic crisis, as the United States Government attempted to remain neutral in the conflict between Great Britain and Revolutionary France. Genet's instructions included implementing portions of the 1778 Franco-American treaty which allowed attacks on British merchant shipping using ships based in American ports When Genêt arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on April 8, 1793 he immediately began to issue privateering commissions with the consent of South Carolina governor William Moultrie. These commissions authorized the bearers, regardless of their country of origin, to seize British merchant ships and their cargo for personal profit, with the approval and protection of the French Government. One sailed and begin attacking British shipping. The U.S. Government requested that the French government recall Genêt. However, Secretary of State Jefferson stopped short of expelling Genet from the United States, as Hamilton had wished. The French government became more radical and it became apparent that if Genet returned to France he would be executed. President Washington allowed Genêt to remain in the United States. As a result of the Citizen Genêt affair, the United States established a set of procedures governing neutrality.
