2631. ENGLAND, Dread of United States.—

Great Britain, in her pride and ascendency,
has certainly hated and despised us
beyond every earthly object. Her hatred May
remain, but the hour of her contempt is passed
and is succeeded by dread; not a present, but
a distant and deep one. It is the greater as
she feels herself plunged into an abyss of
ruin from which no human means point out
an issue. We also have more reason to hate
her than any nation on earth.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. vii, 41. Ford ed., x, 66.
(M. 1816)
