Herein, Clay responded to speech of Josiah Quincy of Massachusetts (1813.057) opposing the " Bill in addition to the act entitled An act to raise an additional military force, and for other purposes" of January 5th; Clay suggests that Quincy was alluding to non-existent conspiracies to distract the country from real causes of the war, and from unconstitutional talks that northern Federalists had held in Boston with British emissaries. Despite the many protests of the Federalists, the bill passed on January 29th (Chap. XVI of Acts of Twelfth Congress, Second session).
