1660. CONSTITUTION (The Federal), Amendments to.—[further continued]..

The real friends of the
Constitution in its federal form, if they wish
it to be immortal, should be attentive, by
amendments, to make it keep pace with the
advance of the age in science and experience.
Instead of this, the European governments
have resisted reformation, until the people,
seeing no other resource, undertake it themselves
by force, their only weapon, and work
it out through blood, desolation and long-continued
anarchy. Here it will be by large fragments
breaking off, and refusing reunion, but
on condition of amendment, or perhaps permanently.—
To Robert J. Garnett. Washington ed. vii, 336. Ford ed., x, 295.
(M. 1824)
