2572. EMBARGO, Opposition to.—[further continued].

I have some apprehension
the tories of Boston, &c., with so poor a
head of a Governor, may attempt to give us
trouble. I have requested General Dearborn to
be on the alert, and fly to the spot where any
open and forcible opposition shall be commenced,
and to crush it in embryo. I am not
afraid but that there is sound matter enough in
Massachusetts to prevent an opposition of the
laws by force.—
To Robert Smith. Washington ed. v, 335.
(M. Aug. 1808)
