882. BONAPARTE (N.), Republicans and.—

I have grieved to see even
good republicans so infatuated as to this man,
as to consider his downfall as calamitous to
the cause of liberty. In their indignation
against England which is just, they seem to
consider all her enemies as our friends, when
it is well known there was not a being on
earth who bore us so deadly a hatred. * * * To whine after this exorcised demon is a
disgrace to republicans, and must have arisen
either from want of reflection, or the indulgence
of passion against principle.—
To Benjamin Austin. Washington ed. vi, 553. Ford ed., x, II.
(M. Feb. 1816)
