7101. PUBLIC CONFIDENCE, Limits to.—

Our Constitution has * * * fixed the
limits to which, and no further, our confidence
may go; and let the honest advocate
of confidence read the Alien and Sedition
Acts, and say if the Constitution has not been
wise in fixing limits to the government it
created, and whether we should be wise in
destroying those limits.—
