765. BARBARY STATES, Suppression of.—

The attempts heretofore made to suppress
the [Barbary] powers have been to exterminate
them at one blow. They are too numerous
and powerful by land for that. A small
effort, but long continued, seems to be the only
method. By suppressing their marine and trade
totally, and continuing this till the present race
of seamen should be pretty well out of the way,
and the younger people betake themselves to
husbandry for which their soil and climate are
well fitted, these nests of banditti might be reformed.—
To James Monroe. Ford ed., iv, 33.
(P. 1785)
