3270. FRIENDS, Separation of.—

No one
feels more painfully than I do, the separation
of friends, and especially when their sensibilities
are to be daily harrowed up by
cannibal newspapers. In these cases, however,
I claim from all parties the privilege
of neutrality, and to be permitted to esteem
all as I ever did. The harmony which made
me happy while at Washington, is as dear
to me now as then, and I should be equally
afflicted, were it, by any circumstance, to be
impaired as to myself.—
To Albert Gallatin. Washington ed. v, 588.
(M. April. 1811)
