3109. FOURTH OF JULY, Europe and.—[continued].

The light which has been
shed on the mind of man through the civilized
world, has given it a new direction
from which no human power can divert it.
The sovereigns of Europe who are wise, or
have wise counsellors, see this, and bend to
the breeze which blows; the unwise alone
stiffen and meet its inevitable crush.—
To Marquis Lafayette. Washington ed. vii, 193. Ford ed., x, 179.
