8865. WAR, America and.—

The insulated
state in which nature has placed the
American continent should so far avail it that
no spark of war kindled in the other quarters
of the globe should be wafted across the wide
oceans which separate us from them.—
To Baron Humboldt. Washington ed. vi, 268. Ford ed., ix, 431.
(M. 1813)
