Is there any issues in the book about a serious dispute that was compromised?

Thomas Jefferson knew compromise between the states and federal government would prove necessary if the nation was to survive. In fact, the letter reveals his fear that the infant nation was fledgling. The idea of secession was fresh in everyone’s minds now that there was not the common enemy provided by the Revolution. Jefferson and Madison reaffirmed their partnership after this dinner (now called the Compromise of 1790), and began to develop a plan that would reinvent the federal government to favor states rights over its own centralized power.
