2580. EMBARGO, Repeal.—[further continued] .

The repeal of the Embargo
is the immediate parent of all our present
evils, and has reduced us to a low standing in
the eyes of the world. I should think that even
the federalists themselves must now be made,
by their feelings, sensible of their error. The
wealth which the Embargo brought home safely,
has now been thrown back into the laps of our
enemies, and our navigation completely crushed,
and by the unwise and unpatriotic conduct of
those engaged in it.—
To Henry Dearborn. Washington ed. v, 529. Ford ed., ix, 277.
(M. July. 1810)
