3226. FREEDOM, Gaining.—

It is unfortunate,
that the efforts of mankind to recover
the freedom of which they have been so
long deprived, will be accompanied with
violence, with errors, and even with crimes.
But while we weep over the means, we must
pray for the end.—
To M. D'Ivernois. Washington ed. iv, 115. Ford ed., vii, 5.
(M. Feb. 1795)
