Excerpt from Journals of the Continental Congress, 1774-1789, Vol. 27: May 11-December 24, 1784 Congress resumed the consideration of the report of the committee on the letters from the ministers of the United States in Europe; and on the question to agree to the following paragraph: That the said ministers be instructed to notify to the powers with whom they may negotiate, the great value at which these United States will esteem their friendship and connection, and that it will be their con stant endeavour to promote a good understanding and harmony with them, and to prevent every thing which might interrupt it by every means in their power; but that the heavy debt which they have contracted during the late war has rendered it inconvenient at present for them to keep ministers resident at the courts of Europe, and they hope that this deviation from the practice of friendly nations may be ascribed to its true cause, and not to any want of respect to their friends, or of attach ment to treaties, to the faithful observance of which they shall at all times pay the most earnest attention.
