Title:
Document, 1798 March 28
Abstract:
Jefferson is suspected of designs which threaten the happiness and independence of the United States by subjecting it to the will of a foreign nation which "sacrifices everything to its insatiable appetite for aggrandizement and universal domination." However, the period is approaching in which Jefferson's integrity or depravity must be proved. If the Democratic Party succeeds in opposing the government and dividing the people, this country might be broken up into individual states which an interested Europe would then keep from reuniting. If on the other hand we become united in defense, we shall lose foreign leanings and "acquire a national character and a national pride."
