8659. UNION (The Federal), Constitution and.—

We must take care that * * * no objection to the new form [Constitution] produces a schism in our Union. This would
be an incurable evil, because near friends falling
out, never reunite cordially; whereas, all
of us going together, we shall be sure to cure
the evils of our new Constitution before they
do great harm.—
To A. Donald. Washington ed. ii, 356.
(P. 1788)
