5542. MORALITY (National), United States and.—[further continued].

It is a great consolation
to me that our government, as it cherishes
most its duties to its own citizens, so is it the
most exact in its moral conduct towards other
nations. I do not believe that in the four
Administrations which have taken place, there
has been a single instance of departure from
good faith towards other nations. We May
sometimes have mistaken our rights, or made
an erroneous estimate of the actions of others,
but no voluntary wrong can be imputed to us.—
To George Logan. Ford ed., x, 68.
Nov. 1816)
