6687. POLAND, Partition of.—

The history
of Poland gives a lesson which all our
countrymen should study; the example of a
country erased from the map of the world by
the dissensions of its own citizens. The papers
of every day read them the counter lesson of
the impossibility of subduing a people acting
with an undivided will. Spain, under all her
disadvantages, physical and mental, is an encouraging
example of this.—
To William Duane. Washington ed. v, 603.
(M. July. 1811)
