5480. MONROE (James), Louisiana purchase.—

I find our opposition is very
willing to pluck feathers from Monroe [on the
acquisition of Louisiana], although not fond of
sticking them into Livingston's coat. The
truth is, both have a just portion of merit; and
were it necessary or proper, it could be shown
that each has rendered peculiar services, and
of important value.—
To General Horatio Gates. Washington ed. iv, 495. Ford ed., viii, 249.
(W. July. 1803)
