7309. REPUBLIC (American), Stability of.—[further continued].

The resistance which
our Republic has opposed to a course of
operation, for which it was not destined,
shows a strength of body which affords the
most flattering presage of duration. I hope
we shall now be permitted to steer her in
her natural course, and to show by the
smoothness of her motion the skill with which
she has been formed for it.—
To General Warren. Washington ed. iv, 375.
(W. March. 1801)
