3683. HARTFORD CONVENTION, English bribery.—

But the British ministers hoped more in their Hartford convention[than
in the disordered condition of our finances].
Their fears of republican France being now
done, away, they are directed to republican
America, and they are playing the same game
for disorganization here, which they played in
your country. The Marats, the Dantons and
Robespierres of Massachusetts are in the same
pay, under the same orders, and making the
same efforts to anarchise us, that their prototypes
in France did there.—
To Marquis de Lafayette. Washington ed. vi, 425. Ford ed., ix, 508.
(M. 1815)
