T. DIGGES TO JOHN ADAMS.
Wandsworth, 2 May, 1780.
General Conway’s motion relative to America was put off to-day for some future period. Hartley’s stands for Friday, the substance of which you will have in the General Advertiser of the 1st of May. Some deviltry has got into Conway’s head, for he seems to think there is yet a door open for peace with America, short of independence, than which nothing can be so fallacious and absurd. How he can imbibe such notions I cannot think; but I am told he is much in the circle of a Scotch acquaintance, and sometimes talks to refugees, such as Mr. Galloway, Allen, &c. I cannot account for it otherwise, than that he is looking up to the command of the army.
I should be glad, when you see and read the debates upon those motions, to know what you think thereof. I am, on all occasions,
Your obedient servant,
