5291. MISSISSIPPI RIVER NAVIGATION, Congress and.—[continued].

I was pleased to see the
vote of Congress, of September the 16th, on the
subject of the Mississippi, as I had before seen,
with great uneasiness, the pursuits of other
principles, which I could never reconcile to
my own ideas of probity or wisdom, and from
which, and my knowledge of the character of
our western settlers, I saw that the loss of that
country was a necessary consequence. I wish
this return to true policy may be in time to
prevent evil.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. ii, 563. Ford ed., v, 63.
