3421. GENET (E. C.), Indefensible conduct.—[continued].

His conduct has given
room for the enemies of liberty and of France,
to come forward in a style of acrimony against
that nation, which they never would have dared
to have done. The disapprobation of the agent
mingles with the reprehension of his nation,
and gives a toleration to that which it never
had before. He has still some defenders in
Freneau, and Greenleaf's paper, who they are
I know not; for even Hutcheson and Dallas
give him up. * * * Hutcheson says that
Genet has totally overturned the republican interest
in Philadelphia. However, the people
going right themselves, if they always see their
republican advocates with them, an accidental
meeting with the monocrats will not be a coalescence.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 53. Ford ed., vi, 402.
(Pa., Sep. 1793)
