Abstract:

Letter from Gadsden to Read relating to the political mood of the country at the time of the quasi-war with France, advocating renunciation of the country's treaty with the French Republic, thanking Read for enclosing text of the address delivered 21 June 1798, by President John Adams, expressing his approval of the President, "a better & firmer piece of Live Oak was not to be found in the United States, I ever had this opinion of him from my first acquaintance & every day since has established it," discussing his support for the Alien and Sedition Acts, which authorized the president to imprison or deport aliens considered dangerous to the peace and safety of the United States and restricted speech critical of the government.

Gadsden concludes his letter by describing writings and recent publications, and favorable reports of S.C.'s increasing exports to trading partners in continental Europe and the reaction of Great Britain: Gadsden describes rice exports as part of the "growing Hamburgh Trade" maintained by a German merchant named Schutt in Charleston, "who settled amongst us as a Citizen soon after the Evacuation, [and] has for these three years past shipt... at least 20,000 Barrels of Rice each year... & has been the principle means of keeping up the Price of Rice... Of this Trade Gr[eat] B[ritai]n appears extremely jealous... His Vessels have been particularly aim'd at... This Hamburgh Trade...."
