8880. WAR, Embargo vs.—

I have ever
been anxious to avoid a war with England,
unless forced by a situation more losing than
war itself. But I did believe we could coerce
her to justice by peaceable means, and the
Embargo, evaded as it was, proved it would
have coerced her had it been honestly executed.—
To Henry Dearborn. Washington ed. v, 529. Ford ed., ix, 278.
(M. July. 1810)
