I have the honor to inclose Copy of a Letter to the Comte de Vergennes, and Copy of Articles and an Answer.

The Conjecture, that the British Court would insist upon their two Preliminaries, is become more probable by the publication of the King’s Speech at the Prorogation of Parliament. “The Zeal and Ardor which You have shewn for the Honor of my Crown,” says the King; “your firm...
