7384. REPUBLICANS, Loyalty of.—

Without knowing the views of what is called
the republican party here [Philadelphia], or
having any communication with them, I
could undertake to assure him [President
Washington] from my intimacy with that
party in the late Congress, that there was not
a view in the republican party as spread over
the United States, which went to the frame
of the government; that I believed the next
Congress would attempt nothing material,
but to render their own body independent;
that that party were firm in their dispositions
to support the government; that the maneuvers
of Mr. Genet might produce some little
embarrassment, but that he would be abandoned
by the republicans the moment they
knew the nature of his conduct.—
