“If ever a nation has been deceived by a man, the American nation has been deceived by {George} Washington. Let his conduct, then, be an example to future ages. Let it serve to be a warning that no man may be an idol. Let the history of the Federal government instruct mankind that the mark of patriotism may be worn to conceal the foulest designs against the liberties of the people.” – James T. Callender, Newspaper Owner and Supporter of Thomas Jefferson
