321. ALLIANCE, Inevitable.—

The day
that France takes possession of New Orleans
* * * seals the union of two nations, who,
in conjunction, can maintain exclusive possession
of the ocean. From that moment, we
must marry ourselves to the British fleet and
nation. We must turn all our attention to a
maritime force * * *.—

(W. April. 1802)
