the United States and England
should co-operate in preventing the
interference of the holy alliance with
the Spanish-American republics.
When bush reported Canning's plan
to Washington, Monroe asked Jeffer
son's advice. The response was:
"The question presented by the let
ters you have sent mesisthe most
momentous which has ever been
offered to my contemplation since
that of independence. That made us
