5707. NAVIES, Equalization of.—

I have read with great satisfaction your observations
on the principles for equalizing
the power of the different nations on the sea,
and think them perfectly sound. Certainly
it will be better to produce a balance on that
element, by reducing the means of its great
monopolizer [England], than by endeavoring
to raise our own to an equality with theirs.—
To Tench Coxe. Washington ed. v, 199. Ford ed., ix, 142.
(M. Sep. 1807)
