2376. EDEN (William), Hatred of the United States.—[continued].

We had often * * * occasions of knowing each other. His peculiar
bitterness towards us had sufficiently appeared,
and I had never concealed from him that I considered
the British as our natural enemies, and
as the only nation on earth who wished us ill
from the bottom of their souls. And I am satisfied
that were our continent to be swallowed
up by the ocean, Great Britain would be in a
bonfire from one end to the other.—
To William Carmichael. Washington ed. ii, 323. Ford ed., iv, 469.
(P. 1787)
