2592. EMBARGO, War preferable.—[continued].

Should neither peace,
nor a revocation of the decrees and orders in
Europe take place, the day cannot be distant
when the Embargo will cease to be preferable
to open hostility. Nothing just or temperate
has been omitted on our part, to retard or avoid
this unprofitable alternative.—
To James Bowdoin. Washington ed. v, 299.
(M. May. 1808)
