Daniel Webster: “Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from… the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness & negligence.”

“I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe … Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger.”

Daniel Webster, June 1, 1837
