1004. BURR'S (A.) TREASON, Strength of Government and. mdash; [further continued].

This affair has been a
great confirmation in my mind of the innate
strength of the form of our government. He
had probably induced near a thousand men to
engage with him, by making them believe the
government connived at it. A proclamation
alone, by undeceiving them, so completely disarmed
him, that he had not above thirty men
left, ready to go all lengths with him.—
To Dupont de Nemours. Washington ed. v, 128. Ford ed., ix, 111.
(W. July. 1807)
