2925. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, Preservation of.—

The fate of this country,
whether it shall be irretrievably plunged into
a form of government rejected by the makers
of the Constitution, or shall get back to the
true principles of that instrument, depends on
the turn which things may take within a
short period of time ensuing the present moment.—
To Edmund Pendleton. Washington ed. iv, 287. Ford ed., vii, 355.
(Pa., Feb. 1799)
