6960. PRINCIPLES, Constitutional.—

A part of the Union having held on to the
principles of the Constitution, time has been
given to the States to recover from the temporary
frenzy into which they had been decoyed,
to rally round the Constitution, and to
rescue it from the destruction with which it
had been threatened even at their own hands,—
To Gideon Granger. Washington ed. iv, 332. Ford ed., vii, 452.
(M. 1800)
