Sydney to Lord Dorchester.3
Whitehall, 14 Sept., 1787.
The report of an intention on the part of America to apply for a sovereign of the house of Hanover4 has been circulated here; and should an application of that nature be made, it will require a very nice consideration in what manner so important a subject should be treated. But whatever ideas may have been formed upon it, it will upon all accounts be advisable that any influence which your lordship may possess should be exerted to discourage the strengthening their alliance with the house of Bourbon, which must naturally follow were a sovereign to be chosen from any branch of that family.
