9131. WHISKY INSURRECTION, Commencement.—

The people in the western
parts of Pennsylvania have been to the excise
officer, and threatened to burn his house, &c.
They were blackened and otherwise disguised,
so as to be unknown. He has resigned, and
Hamilton says there is no possibliity of getting
the law executed, and that probably the evil
will spread. A proclamation is to be issued,
and another instance of my being forced to
appear to approve what I have condemned uniformly
from its first conception.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iii, 563. Ford ed., vi, 261.
(Pa., May. 1793)
