8726. UNITY, National.—[continued].

The times do certainly
render it incumbent on all good citizens, attached
to the rights and honor of their country,
to bury in oblivion all internal differences,
and rally around the standard of their
country in opposition to the outrages of foreign
nations. All attempts to enfeeble and
destory the exertions of the General Government,
in vindication of our national rights,
or to loosen the bands of Union by alienating
the affections of the people, or opposing
the authority of the laws at so eventful a
period, merit the discountenance of all.—
To Governor Tompkins. Washington ed. viii, 153.
(Feb. 1809)
