863. BONAPARTE (N.), Execrated.—

know nothing which can so severely try the
heart and spirit of man, and especially of the
man of science, as the necessity of a passive
acquiescence under the abominations of an
unprincipled tyrant who is deluging the earth
with blood to acquire for himself the reputation
of a Cartouche or a Robin Hood. The
petty larcenies of the Blackbeards and Buccaneers
of the ocean, the more immediately
exercised on us, are dirty and grovelling
things addressed to our contempt, while the
horrors excited by the Scelerat of France are
beyond all human execrations.—
To Dr. Morrell. Washington ed. vi, 100.
(M. Feb. 1813)
