3071. FOREIGN INFLUENCE, English.—

The proof England exhibited on that
occasion [the repeal of the Embargo] that
she can exercise such an influence in this
country as to control the will of its government
and three-fourths of its people, and
oblige the three-fourths to submit to onefourth,
is to me the most mortifying circumstance
which has occurred since the establishment
of our government. The only prospect
I see of lessening that influence, is in her own
conduct, and not from anything in our power.—
To Henry Dearborn. Washington ed. v, 530. Ford ed., ix, 278.
(M. July. 1810)
