512. ARMY, Morality in.—

It is more a
subject of joy [than of regret] that we have so
few of the desperate characters which compose
modern regular armies. But it proves
more forcibly the necessity of obliging every
citizen to be a soldier; this was the case with
the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of
every free State. Where there is no oppression
there can be no pauper hirelings.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. vi, 130.
(M. June. 1813)
