Koninklijke Bibliotheck to's Mage.


THE Fifth Volume of this Collection makes its appearance at the most eventful period of the war-it includes, therefore, matter of the highest importance, and contains all the official documents respecting the late Negotiation-the war between this country and Spain, the progrefs of the French arms in Italy and Germany-the armiftices and treaties concluded with the German and Italian powers-the correfpondence between the French Republic and the United States of America, upon the fubject of the differences that exist between them; together with many other articles relating to the external and internal operations and state of the different belligerent powers. Several of these articles, particularly the important correspondence between the governments of America and France, have never before been published in this country.

The Editor has examined the materials of the Fifth Volume with all the care and attention in his power-he has admitted no papers upon loose or doubtful authority; and he feels a hope that the fame accuracy of translation and clearness of arrangement will be found in this volume as in the four that have preceded it.

March 30th, 1797.
