9014. WASHINGTON (George), Influence of.—

You will have seen by the proceedings
of Congress the truth of what I always observed
to you, that one man outweighs them all
in influence over the people, who have supported
his judgment against their own and that of their
representatives. Republicanism must lie on its
oars, resign the vessel to its pilot, and themselves
to the course he thinks best for them.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. iv, 140. Ford ed., vii, 80
(M. June. 1796)
