5011. MANUFACTURES, Home.—

There can be no question, in a mind truly
American, whether it is best to send our citizens
and property into certain captivity, and
then wage war for their recovery or to keep
them at home, and to turn seriously to that
policy which plants the manufacturer and the
husbandman side by side, and establishes at
the door of every one that exchange of
mutual labors and comforts, which we have
hitherto sought in distant regions, and under
perpetual risk of broils with them.—
R. to A. of New York Tammany Society. Washington ed. viii, 127.
(Feb. 1808)
