2537. EMBARGO, Coasting trade and.—

With respect to the coasting trade, my wish is only to carry into full effect the intentions
of the Embargo laws. I do not wish a single
citizen in any of the States to be deprived
of a meal of bread, but I set down the exercise
of commerce, merely for profit, as nothing when
it carries with it the danger of defeating the
objects of the Embargo.—
To Albert Gallatin. Washington ed. v, 297.
(M. May. 1808)
