The new government
has now for some time been under way.
* * * Abuses under the old forms have
led us to lay the basis of the new in a rigorous
economy of the public contributions. This
principle will show itself in our diplomatic
establishments; and the rather, as at such a
distance from Europe, and with such an ocean
between us, we hope to meddle little in its
quarrels or combinations. Its peace and its
commerce are what we shall court; and to
cultivate these, we propose to place at the
courts of Europe most interesting to us diplomatic
characters of economical grade, and
shall be glad to receive like ones in exchange.—
To M. de Pinto. Washington ed. iii, 174.
(N.Y., 1790)
