Even Adams, who had led in wrecking the new constitution, writing to explain a public reference to Sumner which the latter had thought unkind, said, in good and friendly temper:—

Yet regret this as much as I will on my own account, I am glad to hear that it has not been without some compensation in drawing to you still more our old political friends. They think you unjustly attacked, and they pour out all their indignation against me for it. I shall never again put myself in their power, so that it matters not what they think of me. But the feeling thus engendered may stand you in stead in the career you have before you. You have my wishes and prayers for its success, now as always.
