8443. TIFFIN (H. D.), Fidelity.—

I have
seen with the greatest satisfaction that among
those who have distinguished themselves by
their fidelity to their country, on the occasion
of the enterprise of Mr. Burr, yourself and the
Legislature of Ohio have been the most eminent.
The promptitude and energy displayed
by your State have been as honorable to itself
as salutary to its sister States; and in declaring
that you have deserved well of your country, I
do but express the grateful sentiment of every
faithful citizen in it. The hand of the people
has given the mortal blow to a conspiracy which,
in other countries, would have called for an
appeal to armies, and has proved that government
to be the strongest of which every man
feels himself a part. It is a happy illustration,
too, of the importance of preserving to the State
authorities all that vigor which the Constitution
foresaw would be necessary, not only for their
own safety, but for that of the whole.—
To Governor H. D. Tiffin. Washington ed. v, 37. Ford ed., ix, 21.
(W. 1807)
