June 26, 1796.
I learn from a gentleman of character, that a prize, brought into Boston by a French privateer, is about to be sold. This being in direct breach of our treaty with Great Britain, how does it happen? Though no particular law passed, the treaty being the law of the land, our custom-houses can, and ought to, prevent the entry and sale of prizes, upon Executive instruction. If any thing is wanting to this end, for God’s sake, my dear sir, let it be done, and let us not be disgraced.
Considering what is going on, and may go on, in the West Indies, it appears to me essential that the President should be empowered to lay embargoes in the interval between the present and the next session of Congress.
