2565. EMBARGO, Necessity for.—[further continued].

Those moral principles
and conventional usages which have heretofore
been the bond of civilized nations, which have
so often preserved their peace by furnishing
common rules for the measure of their rights
have now given way to force, the law of barbarians,
and the nineteenth century dawns with
the vandalism of the fifth. Nothing has been
spared on our part to preserve the peace of
our country during this distempered state of
the world.—
R. to A. Ketocton Baptists. Washington ed. viii, 138.
