2995. FILIBUSTERISM, Prevention.—

If you will * * * give me such information
as to persons and places as may indicate to what points the vigilance of the officers is
to be directed, proper measures will be immediately
taken for preventing every attempt
to make any hostile expedition from these
States against any of the dominions of
France. The stronger the proofs you can
produce, and the more pointed as to persons,
the stronger will be the means of coercion
which the laws will allow to be used.—
To E. C. Genet. Ford ed., vi, 426.
(Pa., Sep. 1793)
