4020. INTOLERANCE, Delusion through.—

Your part of the Union, though as absolutely republican as ours, had drunk
deeper of the delusion, and is, therefore,
slower in recovering from it. The ægis of
government, and the temples of religion and
of justice, have all been prostrated there to
toll us back to the times when we burned
witches. But your people will rise again.
They will awake like Samson from his
sleep, and carry away the gates and posts of
the city.—
To Elbridge Gerry. Washington ed. iv, 390. Ford ed., viii, 41.
(W. March. 1801)
