7369. REPUBLICANS, Divisions among.—[further continued]..

I have long seen, and
with very great regret, the schisms which have
taken place among the republicans, and principally
those of Pennsylvania and New York.
As far as I have been able to judge, they have
not been produced by any difference of political
principle,—at least, any important difference,
but by a difference of opinion as to persons. I
determined from the first moment to take no
part in them, and that the Government should
know nothing of any such differences. Accordingly,
it has never been attended to in any
appointment, or refusal of appointment.—
To James Gamble. Washington ed. v, 204. Ford ed., ix, 129.
(W. 1807)
