Henry Clay shows his concern for American industry in a letter to Adam Beatty on the subject of foreign affairs. He reports that a bill to augment the duties fifty percent has passed the House of Representatives, but fears that it won’t be concurred in by the Senate. If it passes, the bill will encourage manufactures. The bill is also temporary, and Clay would prefer a smaller augmentation that is durable.
