2943. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, Watchfulness over.—

Our political machine
is now pretty well wound up, but are the
spirits of our people sufficiently wound down
to let it work glibly. I trust it is too soon
for that, and that we have many centuries
to come yet before my countrymen cease to
bear their government hard in hand.—
To W. S. Smith. Washington ed. ii, 448.
(P. 1788)
