President Adams transmits to Congress the report of American Ministers Charles Pinckney, John Marshall, and Elbridge Gerry. They enclose the Messages of Talleyrand who, while claiming a desire for friendship with America, complains that the United States is entirely at fault for the imperfect relations between the two nations. Talleyrand says that America, by agreeing to the Jay Treaty with England, has unjustifiably allied itself with France's enemies, and has hindered French maritime commerce.
