TO HENRY ALEXANDER SCAMMELL DEARBORN

WASHINGTON, 8th January, 1822.

DEAR SIR:

I have had the pleasure of receiving your letter of the 2nd instant.1 You will see by the National Intelligencer of yesterday that the matter is in a fair way to be settled here immediately, without waiting for the voice of the people. An attempt is making to accomplish a Congressional caucus nomination at this time for an election yet three years distant. You will readily excuse me from any comment on the subject.

I am, etc.

"You will observe in the Patriot of this day that the skirmishing has commenced, and will be continued and extended. The Salem papers and one in Portland and New Hampshire will fire, as soon as they have seen the flash here. I think you can depend on all New England. The federalists, except perhaps the junto, will be for you, as well as all the republicans, save perhaps a few. We think it highly important that the papers in all the states on our side should come out at once, and a firm and forward movement made throughout the Union, and particularly at Washington. Every day is in favor of the adverse party that is now neglected. I write this by the request of your friends here, that our course may be understood and seconded at Washington, and measures taken to cause a similar demonstration at all the chief cities. We must not now retire, or hall, but go bravely on. You will therefore consider the piece in the Patriot as the signal in the north and must be repeated." Dearborn to John Quincy Adams, January 2, 1822. Ms.

"I never did like John Q. Adams. He must have a very objectionable rival whose election I should not prefer. I think it would be difficult for any candidate to divide the vote in New England with him. Although he may not be very popular, yet it seems to be in some degree a matter of necessity to support him, if any man is to be taken from the land of the Pilgrims. I should really prefer Calhoun, Lowndes, Crawford, Clinton and fifty others that I could mention; but this is high matter and it is very uncertain what political feeling may prevail three years hence. I am sorry that there was not a better account from Albany. The course you mention is the only one that our condition leaves, and that will not be taken. At least I fear it." Ezekiel Webster to Daniel Webster, January 28, 1822. ( Van Tyne, 89.)
