622. AUTHORITY, Civil and Military.—[further continued]..

Bonaparte has transferred
the destinies of the republic from the civil
to the military arm. Some will use this as a
lesson against the practicability of republican
government. I read it as a lesson against the
danger of standing armies.—
To Samuel Adams. Washington ed. iv, 322. Ford ed., vii, 425.
(Pa., Feb. 1800)
