9048. WEALTH, Dominion of.—

Our experience
so far, has satisfactorily manifested
the competence of a republican government to
maintain and promote the best interests of its
citizens; and every future year, I doubt not,
will contribute to settle a question on which
reason, and a knowledge of the character and
circumstances of our fellow citizens, could
never admit a doubt, and much less condemn
them as fit subjects to be consigned to the
dominion of wealth and force.—
R. to A. Connecticut Republicans. Washington ed. viii, 140.
