844. BISHOP (Samuel), New Haven Remonstrance and.—[continued].

Some occasion of public
explanation was eagerly desired, when the
New Haven remonstrance offered us that occasion.
The answer was meant as an explanation
to our friends. It has had on
them, everywhere, the most wholesome effect.
Appearances of schismatizing from us have
been entirely done away. I own I expected
it would check the current with which the
republican federalists were returning to their
brethren, the republicans. I extremely lamented
this effect; for the moment which
should convince me that a healing of the nation
into one is impracticable, would be the
last moment of my wishing to remain where
I am.—
To Levi Lincoln. Washington ed. iv, 406. Ford ed., viii, 84.
(M. Aug. 1801)
