2563. EMBARGO, Necessity for.—

live in an age of affliction, to which the history
of nations presents no parallel. We have for
years been looking on Europe covered with
blood and violence, and seen rapine spreading
itself over the ocean. On this element it has
reached us, and at length in so serious a degree,
that the Legislature of the nation has
thought it necessary to withdraw our citizens
and property from it, either to avoid, or to prepare
for engaging in the general contest.—
To Captain McGregor. Washington ed. v, 356.
(M. 1808)
