994. BURR'S (A.) TREASON, Flagitious.—

His conspiracy has been one of the
most flagitious of which history will ever furnish
an example. He meant to separate the Western
States from us, to add Mexico to them, place
himself at their head, establish what he would
deem an energetic government, and thus provide
an example and an instrument for the subversion
of our freedom. The man who could expect
to effect this, with American materials,
must be a fit subject for Bedlam.—
To Marquis de Lafayette. Washington ed. v, 129. Ford ed., ix, 113.
(W. July. 1807)
