5334. MONARCHY, Advocates for.—[further continued].

I know, indeed, that there
are monarchists among us. One character of
these is in theory only, and perfectly acquiescent
in our form of government as it is, and not entertaining
a thought of destroying it merely on
their theoretic opinions. A second class, at the
head of which is our quondam colleague [in the
cabinet, Hamilton], are ardent for introduction
of monarchy, eager for armies, making more
noise for a great naval establishment than better
patriots, who wish it on a rational scale
only, commensurate to our wants and our
means. This last class ought to be tolerated
but not trusted.—
To General Henry Knox. Washington ed. iv, 386. Ford ed., viii, 36.
(W. March. 1801)
