(Thos. Jefferson, Sec. o f State.)
It is well agreed in the Law of
Nations that for a neutral power
to give or refuse permission to
the troops o f eitherj belligerent
party to pass through their ter
ritory is no breach o f neutrality,
provided that the same refusal
or permission is extended to the
other party. I f we refuse, and
the troops should pass through
notwithstanding (o f which there
can be little doubt ), we stand
committed: for either we must
enter immediately into war or
I>ocket an insult in the face o f
the world. There is, indeed, a
middle course which I shall in
cline to prefer, that is to avoid
givin g an answer, . . . this will
leave us free to pass it over with
out dishonor or make it a handle
o f a quarrel should we have use
for it as such..........
But if we are obliged to give
an answer, 1 think the occasion
not such as should induce us to
hazard that answer which might
commit us to war. and, therefore,
that passage should be permit

This is so manifestly contrary
to the Law o f Nations that noth
ing more would seem necessary
than to observe that it is so.
Reason and usage have estab
lished that when two nations go
to war, those who choose to live
in peace retain their natural right
to pursue their ordinary vocation
and to carry their products to all
nations, belligerent or neutral, as
usual. . . . One restriction has
been submitted to by nations at
peace, that o f not furnishing to
either party implements merely
o f war. . . . It suffices to say for
the present that corn flour and
meal are not o f the class o f con
traband, and consequently re-
main articles o f free commerce.
To Thos. Pinckney, Sept., 1793.
I f we permit corn to be sent to
Great Britain and her friends, we
are equally hound to permit it to
France. To restrain it would be
a partiality which might lead to
war with France: and between
restraining it ourselves and per
m itting her enemies to restrain it
unrightly is no difference.
She would consider this as a
mere pretext o f which she would
not be the dupe, and on what
honorable ground could we other
wise explain it? Thus we should
see ourselves plunged by this un-
