8917. WAR, Premeditated.—

That war
with us had been predetermined may be fairly
inferred from the diction of Berkley's order,
the Jesuitism of which proves it ministerial
from its being so timed as to find us in the
midst of Burr's rebellion as they expected,
from the contemporaneousness of the Indian
excitements, and of the wide and sudden
spread of their maritime spoliations.—
To Thomas Paine. Washington ed. v, 189. Ford ed., ix, 137.
(M. Sep. 1807)
