4016. INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS, War and.—[continued].

Give us peace till our
revenues are liberated from debt, and then,
if war be necessary, it can be carried on without
a new tax or loan, and during peace we
may chequer our whole country with canals,
roads, &c. This is the object to which all
our endeavors should be directed.—
To Mr. Lieper. Washington ed. v, 296.
(M. May. 1808)
