CHAPTER XVI. LOAX BY SPAIN AITEMPT TO GET SPECIE FROM HAVANA REhlONSTRANCES OF FRANCE AGAINST UNDUE DEPESDENCE ON HER JAYS DISIXESS GILLON AND THE SUPPLIES FROM HOLLAND THE END OF 1781. HEN Morris took office, he had eager hopes of loans from Spain. In July, 1781, hc wrote a long letter to Jay to stimulate him to apply for such loan, and to provide him with arguments by which he might persuadc the Spanish hIi11ister. He proposed that thc Unitcd States shouId help Spain to conquer Florida, the Jlaharnas, and perhaps Jamaica. Then hc suggested that Nova Sco tia rnight bc conquel-ed, thus depriving Great Rrjtain of ship timber, and obtaining a cheap supply of it for Spain. This would destroy the fisheries of Great Britain, on which she relied as a nursery for scamcn. Englancl could be driven out of the Gulf of Mexico, and Spain could open a port in East Florida for trade with the Unitcd States. I-le wanted a loan of five milIion dollars. If more could be got, more could be done. The United States do not mean to beg gratuities, but to nlakc rationalrequcsts. 1 Dip. Corr. Rev. vii. 423. VOL. 11...
