6001. NON-INTERCOURSE, Unpopular.—

Our affairs are certainly now at their
ultimate point of crisis. I understand the Eastern
republicans will agree to nothing which
shall render non-intercourse effectual, and that
in any question of that kind, the federalists will
have a majority. There remains, then, only
war or submission, and if we adopt the former,
they will desert us.—
To W. C. Nicholas. Washington ed. v, 488.
(M. Dec. 1809)
