2969. FEDERALISTS, Madness of.—[continued].

A little more prudence
and moderation in those [federal leaders] who had mounted themselves on the fears [of
the people], and it would have been long and
difficult to unhorse them. Their madness had
done in three years what reason alone, acting
against them, would not have effected in
many; and the more, as they might have gone
on forming new entrenchments for themselves
from year to year.—
To John Dickinson. Washington ed. iv, 424.
(W. 1801)
