8856. VOLNEY (Comte de), Opposed to war.—

Volney and a shipload of French sail
[soon]. * * * It is natural to expect they go
under irritations calculated to fan the flame.
Not so Volney. He is most thoroughly impressed
with the importance of preventing war,
whether considered with reference to the interests
of the two countries, of the cause of republicanism,
or of man on the broad scale.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 245. Ford ed., vii, 262.
(Pa., May. 1798)
