362. ANGLOMANIA, Servile.—

I wish any events could induce us to cease to copy
such a model, [the British government,] and
to assume the dignity of being original. They
had their paper system, stockjobbing, speculations,
public debt, moneyed interest, &c.,
and all this was contrived for us. They
raised their cry against jacobinism and revolutionists,
we against democratic societies and
anti-federalists; their alarmists sounded insurrection,
ours marched an army to look for
one, but they could not find it. I wish the parallel
may stop here, and that we may avoid,
instead of imitating, a general bankruptcy
and disastrous war.—
To Horatio Gates. Washington ed. iv, 178. Ford ed., vii, 130.
(Pa., 1797)
