6299. ORDERS IN COUNCIL, Repeal of.—

The British ministry has been driven from its Algerine system, not by any remaining
morality in the people, but by their unsteadiness
under severe trial. But whencesoever
it comes, I rejoice in it as the triumph
of our forbearing and yet persevering system.
It will lighten your anxieties, take from cabal
its most fertile ground of war, will give us
peace during your time, and by the complete
extinguishment of our public debt, open upon
us the noblest application of revenue that has
ever been exhibited by any nation.—
To President Madison. Washington ed. v, 443.
(M. April. 1809)
