Description
Thanks them for their assurances of confidence and good opinion; the calumnies against himself have caused him some pain, as the happiness of his country and the approbation of good men have been his chief objects; he hopes that in America the virtue of the citizens will protect public office and public character, while honestly administered and preserved, against the assaults of faction.
