7150. RANDOLPH (John), Defection.—[continued].

Unexpected and strange
phenomena in the early part of the session, produced
a momentary dismay within the walls of
the House of Representatives. However the
body of republicans soon discovered their true
situation, rallied to their own principles, and
moved on towards their object in a solid phalanx;
insomuch that the session did most of the
good which was in their power, and did it
well. Republicanism may perhaps have lost a
few of its anomalous members, but the steadiness
of its great mass has considerably increased
on the whole my confidence in the solidity and
permanence of our government.—
To John Tyler. Ford ed., viii, 442.
(W. April. 1806)
