7623. RIGHTS OF MAN, Immortal.—

Although the horrors of the French Revolution
have damped for awhile the ardor of the
patriots in every country, yet it is not extinguished—it will never die. The sense of
right has been excited in every breast, and the
spark will be rekindled by the very oppressions
of that detestable tyranny employed to
quench it. The errors of the honest patriots
of France, and the crimes of her Dantons and
Robespierres, will be forgotten in the more
encouraging contemplation of our sober example,
and steady march to our object.—
To Benjamin Galloway. Washington ed. vi, 41.
(M. 1812)
