6428. PARTIES, Natural division.—

The division into whig and tory is founded in
the nature of men; the weakly and neverless,
the rich and the corrupt, seeing more safety
and accessibility in a strong executive; the
healthy, firm, and virtuous, feeling confidence
in their physical and moral resources, and willing
to part with only so much power as is necessary
for their good government; and, therefore,
to retain the rest in the hands of the many,
the division will substantially be into whig
and tory, as in England formerly.—
To Joel Barlow. Washington ed. iv, 438. Ford ed., viii, 150.
(W. May. 1802)
