6100. OFFICES, Intolerance and.—[continued].

When I entered on office,
after giving a very small participation in office
to republicans by removal of a very few
federalists, selected on the principle of their
own intolerance while in office, I never meant
to have touched another, but to leave to the
ordinary accidents to make openings for republicans,
but the vindictive, indecent and
active opposition of some individuals has
obliged me from time to time to disarm them
of the influence of office.—
To Andrew Ellicott. Ford ed., viii, 479.
(W. Nov. 1806)
