Author: Jefferson, Thomas, 1743-1826
Abstract: Anti-French sentiment is flagging after it peaked during the XYZ affair; hawks "committed themselves too far" to demanding war and their popularity is suffering for it; New England lags behind in accepting the change because "their priests . . . had begun to hope they could toll us on to an established church" but the states may come into the republican camp; Jefferson says "no endeavor will be spared" to reunite the nation and restore harmony.
