2582. EMBARGO, Salutary.—

That the
Embargo laws were salutary and indispensably
necessary to meet the obstructions [of our commerce],
are truths as evident to every candid
man, as it is worthy of every good citizen to declare
his reprobation of that system of opposition
which goes to an avowed and practical resistance
of these laws.—
R. to A. Annapolis Citizens. Washington ed. viii, 150.
