2517. EMBARGO, Alternative of war.—[further continued] .

We have to choose bebetween
the alternatives of Embargo and war.
There is indeed one and only one other, that
is submission and tribute. For all the federal
propositions for trading to the places permitted
by the edicts of the belligerents, result
in fact in submission, although they do not
choose to pronounce the naked word.—
To Mr. Letue. Washington ed. v, 384.
(W. Nov. 1808)
