2555. EMBARGO, Federalists and.—

The federalists during their short-lived ascendency
have, by forcing us from the Embargo,
inflicted a wound on our interests which can
never be cured, and on our affections which
will require time to cicatrize. I ascribe all
this to one pseudo-republican, Story. He came
on (in place of Crowningshield, I believe) and
stayed only a few days; long enough, however,
to get complete hold of Bacon, who, giving in
to his representations, became panic-struck,
and communicated his panic to his colleagues,
and they to a majority of the sound members
of Congress. They believed in the alternative
of repeal or civil war, and produced the fatal
measure of repeal.—
To Henry Dearborn. Washington ed. v, 529. Ford ed., ix, 277.
(M. July. 1810)
