He was of limited ability, and like most, never gained the office he desired. And what of George Washington, a fatigued man, who stayed in his post while yearning for the fields of Mount Vernon? Despite his wishes for escape he remained at this point in his administration what he had been when it began. He was different in one major respect.

To share in the broils of none. To fulfill our own engagements. And to supply their wants, and be carriers for them all; being thoroughly convinced that it is our policy, & interest to do so; and that nothing short of self respect, and that
