7392. REPUBLICANS, Rights of man and.—

Whether the principles of the majority
of our fellow citizens, or of the little
minority still opposing them, be most friendly
to the rights of man, posterity will judge;
and to that arbiter I submit my own conduct
with cheerfulness.—
To C. F. Welles. Washington ed. v, 484.
(M. 1809)
