Allen, John to Deming, Julius, 1798 May 24
1798 May 24
John Allen writes to Julius Deming from Philadelphia about political affairs in the context of the deteriorating relations with France; a direct tax seems unavoidable; commissioners will probably be expected by President Adams to serve in volunteer corps, but a Connecticut law prohibits officials from serving in two capacities will cause difficulties; the US need to prepare for war,  and condemns the opposition.  The President has not heard back from the commissioners to France, but Allen expects the French to behave in a humiliating fashion; celebrates the Federalist victory in the recent Connecticut elections, equates the Jeffersonians with the Jacobins, and calls to push them out of positions of power; President Adams is very happy with the behavior of the state of Connecticut in the current climate.
