2538. EMBARGO, Coercion of Europe.—

The resolutions of the republican citizens of
Boston are worthy of the ancient character of
the sons of Massachusetts, and of the spirit of
concord with her sister States, which, and
which alone, carried us successfully through
the Revolutionary war, and finally placed us
under that national government, which constitutes
the safety of every part, by uniting for
its protection the powers of the whole. The
moment for exerting these united powers, to
repel the injuries of the belligerents of Europe,
seems likely to be pressed upon us.—
To William Eustis, Washington ed. v, 410. Ford ed., ix, 235.
(W. Jan. 1809)
