Physical Description
Note: A. L. S. Endorsed. 4 pp. 4o
Acknowledges letter of the 16th congratulating him on his approaching presidency; great quantities of handbills have been circulated in the late election; the more they write and lie about his Defence [of the American Constitution], the more good they will do by causing people to read the volumes; the principles of his book will be adopted soon in France; they have already raised that government out of anarchy; our antifederal emissaries have made the French believe that we shall do as they please; he will need the help of his friends, if elected president; a postscript deprecates the democratic tendencies of Jefferson and his patronage of Thomas Paine and Philip Freneau.
