5467. MONROE (James), Ability.—[continued].

I clearly think with you
on the competence of Monroe to embrace great
views of action. The decision of his character,
his enterprise, firmness, industry, and
unceasing vigilance, would, I believe, secure, as
I am sure they would merit, the public confidence,
and give us all the success which our
means can accomplish.—
To William Duane. Washington ed. vi, 81. Ford ed., ix, 368.
(M. Oct. 1812)
