6181. OFFICE-HOLDERS, Removals.—[further continued]..

I am satisfied that the
heaping of abuse on me, personally, has been
with the design and hope of provoking me to
make a general sweep of all federalists out of
office. But as I have carried no passion into
the execution of this disagreeable duty, I shall
suffer none to be excited. The clamor which
has been raised will not provoke me to remove
one more, nor deter me from removing
one less, than if not a word had been
said on the subject.—
To Levi Lincoln. Washington ed. iv, 407. Ford ed., viii, 84.
(M. Aug. 1801)
