2541. EMBARGO, Duration of.—[continued].

The absurd opinion has
been propagated, that this temporary and necessary
arrangement was to be a permanent system,
and was intended for the destruction of
commerce. The sentiments expressed in the
paper you were so kind as to enclose to me,
[address of Boston republicans] show that
those who have concurred in them have judged
with more candor the intentions of their government,
and are sufficiently aware of the tendency
of the excitements and misrepresentations
which have been practiced on this occasion.—
To Dr. William Eustis. Washington ed. v, 410. Ford ed., ix, 235.
(W. Jan. 1809)
