1343. COERCION OF A STATE, A navy and.—

Compulsion was never so easy as in
our case, where a single frigate would soon
levy on the commerce of any State the deficiency
of its contributions; nor more safe

shown that it would wait, as it ought
to do, to the last extremities before it would
execute any of its powers which are disagreeable.—
To E. Carrington. Washington ed. ii, 218. Ford ed., iv, 424.
(P. Aug. 1787)
