2960. FEDERALISTS, Jay's Treaty and.—

Though the Anglomen have in the end
got their treaty through, and so far triumphed
over the cause of republicanism, yet
it has been to them a dear-bought victory.
It has given the most radical shock to their
party it has ever received; and there is no
doubt, they would be glad to be replaced on
the ground they possessed the instant before
Jay's nomination extraordinary. They see
that nothing can support them but the colossus
of the President's merits with the people,
and the moment he retires, that his successor,
if a monocrat, will be overborne by the republican
sense of his constituents; if a republican,
he will, of course, give fair play to
that sense, and lead things into the channel
of harmony between the governors and
governed. In the meantime, patience.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. iv, 148. Ford ed., vii, 89.
(M. July. 1796)
