5307. MISSOURI QUESTION, Geographical line.—[continued].

I congratulate you on
the sleep of the Missouri question. I wish
I could say in its death, but of this I despair.
The idea of a geographical line once
suggested will brood in the minds of all
those who prefer the gratification of their
ungovernable passions to the peace and union
of their country.—
To Mark Langdon Hill. Washington ed. vii, 155.
(M. April. 1820)
