Daniel D. Tompkins, Reply to the New York senate, [5 October 1814]
The enlightened view which the Senate has taken of the great events which have lately transpired, and of their probable influence upon the interest and destiny of the United States, displays wisdom and patriotism, worthy of that dignified body. Their favorable notice of my official conduct in the recent emergency, receives the most respectful acknowledgments; & a continuance of their approbation, is the highest reward to which I aspire.
DANIEL D. TOMPKINS.
