8650. UNION (The Federal), Ancher of hope.—

I have been happy in believing * * * that whatever follies we may be led into as
to foreign nations, we shall never give up
our Union, the last anchor of our hope, and
that alone which is to prevent this heavenly
country from becoming an arena of gladiators.—
To Elbridge Gerry. Washington ed. iv, 173. Ford ed., vii, 122.
(Pa., May. 1797)
