6180. OFFICE-HOLDERS, Removals.—[further continued] .

In Connecticut alone, a
general sweep seems to be called for on principles
of justice and policy. Their Legislature
are removing every republican even
from the commissions of the peace and
the lowest offices. There, then, we will retaliate.
Whilst the federalists are taking
possession of all the State offices, exclusively,
they ought not to expect we will leave them
the exclusive possession of those at our
disposal. The republicans have some rights
and must be protected.—
To Wilson C. Nicholas. Ford ed., viii, 64.
(W. June. 1801)
