J " ! consider the Imperial decree
of the 2 1st Nov. last, as, thus, far
conveying no modification of the
regulations at present observed in

vigators, nor consequently of the

; , But td though, . by tils answer,
the .four questions upon which
your excellency has , desired to
know my opinion, has been im4
plicitly resolved I think I can add,
1st, That the declaration express'
cd by the 1st article of the decree
of the 2 1 st of Nov. not at all chang.1
ing the present French laws con
cerning maritime captures, - there
is no reason for enquiring what
interpretation, or restriction or ex
tension may he given to this am
de, . ' ' . " ' ...''. ': ;
2d, Thatscimres, contrary to'
the present regulations concern-,
irig cruizingV; shall not be allowed
lo the captors. , ' , . ', . " .
, 3d. That an American vessel
cannot be taken at sea for the mere
reason that she is going to a port
of Enrfandrdrls returninir from
I one, because conformably with the
uuuiut ui vuc saui uccrce, we
are limited in France not to admit
