7399. REPUBLICS, Contending.—

would not gratify the combination of kings
with the spectacle of the only two republics
on earth destroying each other for two cannon;
nor would I, for infinitely greater cause,
add this country to that combination, turn the
scale of contest, and let it be from our hands
that the hopes of man receive their last stab.—
Opinion on “The Little Sarah”. Washington ed. ix, 155. Ford ed., vi, 343.
(July. 1793)
