Thoughtful Words Send From A Reader

A little patience, and we shall see the reign of
witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the
people, recovering their true sight, restore their
government to its true principles. It is true that in
the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and
incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of
enormous public debt.... If the game runs sometimes
against us at home we must have patience till luck
turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of
winning back the principles we have lost, for this is
a game where principles are at stake. (1798 after
passage of the Alien and Sedition Act)
-Thomas Jefferson
