4017. INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS, War and.—[further continued].

The late pacification with
England gives us a hope of eight years of
peaceable and wise administration, within
which time our revenue will be liberated from
debt, and be free to commence that splendid
course of public improvement and wise application
of the public contributions, of which
it remains for us to set the first example.—
To Dr. E. Griffith. Washington ed. v, 451.
(M. May. 1809)
