2553. EMBARGO, Exports and.—

fifteen months' continuance it is now discontinued,
because, losing $50,000,000 of exports annually
by it, it costs more than war, which
might be carried on for a third of that, besides
what might be got by reprisal. War, therefore,
must follow if the edicts are not repealed before
the meeting of Congress in May.—
To General Armstrong. Washington ed. v, 433.
(W. March. 1809)
