Excerpt from Correspondence Between Mr. Webster and Lord Ashburton on McLeod's Case on the Creole Case on the Subject of ImpressmentMy Lord: In relation to the case of the "Caroline" which we have heretofore made the subject of conference, I have thought it right to place in your hands an extract of a letter from this Department to Mr. Fox, of the 24th of April, 1841, and an extract from the message of the President of the United States to Congress at the commencement of its present session. These papers you have, no doubt, already seen; but they are, nevertheless, now communicated, as such communication is considered a ready mode of presenting the view which this Government entertains of the destruction of that vessel.The act of which the government of the United States complains is not to be considered as justifiable, as the question of the lawfulness or unlawfulness of the employment in which the "Caroline" was engaged may be decided the one way or the other. That act is of itself a wrong, and an offence to the sovereignty and the dignity of the United States, being a violation of their soil and territory - a wrong for which, to this day, no atonement, or even apology, has been made by her majesty's Government. Your lordship can not but be aware that self-respect, the consciousness of independence and national equality, and a sensitiveness to whatever may touch the honor of the country - a sensitiveness which this Government will ever feel and ever cultivate - make this matter of high importance, and I must be allowed to ask for it your lordship's grave consideration.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
