For, as the...

Thanks TJ for his letter of 13 Nov.; is pleased that so much progress has been made in the commercial negotiations with France; hopes he will receive further details on this subject.

Liverpool, 1 Nov. 1790. Wrote him on 9 Sep. and on 25 Oct. received TJ’s letter of 26 Aug.

But now the warlike preparations, already so great, continuing to augment, the prevailing Opinion of the Day...
