In the note I had the hurior to address your
eXct-liencv on the 10th November last the spirit of
the English government was so far noticed as to
Anticipate the fact no v proved by experience, that
its orders in council violating the rights of neutrals',
would not be revoked. .The decl-ration of the
frince Regent of the SlsV of April, ha placed that
fact beyond ll question. In doing this he has re
peated the assertion so often advanced 6y his
ministers and judges that the "decrees of France
j of a' similar" character are like wise unrevoked. r
.,', You. Mr ill notice that he finds a new arggmenu
for this conclusion in your excellency late report
to the Emperor concerning neutral rights Irt which
yon avoid taking notice of any repeal or modifica
tion of these decrees or of their nori application to
