3625. HAMILTON (Alexander), Subservient to England.—

Hamilton is panicstruck,
if we refuse our breach to every kick
which Great Britain may choose to give it.
He is for proclaiming at once the most abject
principles, such as would invite and merit habitual
insults; and indeed every inch of ground
must be fought in our councils to desperation,
in order to hold up the face of even a sneaking
neutrality, for our votes are generally two and
a half against one and a half. Some propositions
have come from him which would astonish
Mr. Pitt himself with their boldness. If we
preserve even a sneaking neutrality, we shall
be indebted for it to the President, and not to
his counsellors.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. iii, 548. Ford ed., vi. 238.
(Pa., May. 1793)
