2617. ENGLAND, Commerce with.—[further continued].

Nothing will bring the
British to reason but physical obstruction, applied
to their bodily senses. We must show
that we are capable of foregoing commerce
with them, before they will be capable of consenting
to an equal commerce. We have all
the world besides open to supply us with gewgaws,
and all the world to buy our tobacco.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., iv, 36.
(P. 1785)
