3670. HARMONY, Obstacles to.—[continued].

I know there is an obstacle
which very possibly may check the confidence
which would otherwise have been more
generally reposed in my observance of these
principles. This obstacle does not arise from
the measures to be pursued, as to which I am
in no fear of giving satisfaction, but from
appointments and disappointments as to office.—
To Dr. Benjamin Rush. Washington ed. iv, 382. Ford ed., viii, 30.
(W. March. 1801)
