TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATESW. MSS.
Philadelphia Apr. 28. 1793.
According to the intimation the other day, and indeed according to my own wish in a question, if not difficult, yet very important, I have the honor to inclose you a written opinion on the question Whether the U S. ought to declare their treaties with France void, or suspended?
This contains my answer to the 2d. 3d. 4th. 5th. & 6th. of the written queries.
The 1st. had been before answered & acted on.
The 7th. 8th. 9th. & 10th. are questions on the Guarantee, which it may possibly never be necessary to answer; or if we should be called on we may then take due time to give in the answer, which must always be framed in a considerable degree on the circumstances existing at that moment.
The 4th. page of the inclosed contains my answer to the 11th.
The 12th. I answer by saying that if the Nation of France shall ever reestablish such an officer as Regent (of which there is no appearance at present) I should be for receiving a Minister from him: but I am not for doing it from any Regent, so christened, and set up by any other authority.
The 13th. has been decided negatively
