4062. JACKSON (Andrew), Seminole War and.—

I observe Ritchie imputes to you
and myself opinions against Jackson's conduct
in the Seminole war. I certainly never doubted
that the military entrance into Florida, the temporary
occupation of their posts, and the execution
of Arbuthnot and Ambrister were all
justifiable. * * * I at first felt regret at the
execution; but I have ceased to feel[manuscript
torn] on mature reflection, and a belief
the example will save much blood.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., x, 124.
(M. 1819)
