153. ADMINISTRATIONS, Ill-tempered.—

We have received a report that the
French Directory has proposed a declaration
of war against the United States to the Council
of Ancients, who have rejected it. Thus
we see two nations, who love one another
affectionately, brought by the ill temper of
their executive administrations, to the very
brink of necessity to imbrue their hands in
the blood of each other.—
To Aaron Burr. Washington ed. iv, 187. Ford ed., vii, 148.
(Pa., June. 1797)
