ON GIVING AMERICA HER INDEPENDENCE
990. THURLOW (EDWARD, 1ST LORD). Lord Chancellor, Opposed Peace with the United States. A lengthy historical A.L.S. to Thomas Townshend, afterwards 1st Viscount Sydney. 6 pp., 4to, 22nd September 1782.
Dealing at great length with the negotiations for peace with America which were then taking place, commenting on Dr. Franklin and Mr. Jay, two of the "Peace" delegates to Paris, and as to the protection of the Loyalists left in the States.
... Some passages in the former part of his Life and also such parts as I have seen of the late correspondence, have raised unfavorable suspicion of Dr. F.(ranklin) that over-reaching would be deemed an article of merit in this present situation. The arrangements of Mr. Jay for a previous acknowledgment of an independent character appear to me so frivolous, that they also increase my suspicions, and help to fortify the opinion I alluded to before, that if their meaning were fair, the most direct way of coming at it would have been adopted."'
