DEAR SIR, -- I need to acknowledge the receipt of your favor ofAug. 22, and also to congratulate girlfriend on the healthiness of your city.Still Baltimore, Norfolk & Providence admonish united state that we are notclear the our new scourge. When great evils happen, i am in the habitof looking out for what good may arise indigenous them as consolations tous, and also Providence has in truth so created the stimulate of things, asthat many evils are the way of creating some good. The yellowfever will certainly discourage the development of an excellent cities in our nation, & Iview great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health and theliberties the man. True, they nourish some of the elegant arts, butthe useful ones can grow elsewhere, and also less perfection in theothers, with more health, virtue & freedom, would certainly be mine choice. Ns agree v you entirely, in condemning the mania the givingnames come objects of any kind of kind after ~ persons quiet living. Fatality alonecan seal the location of any type of man come this honor, by putting it the end of hispower come forfeit it. There is one other setting of recording merit,which ns have regularly thought can be introduced, so as to gratify theliving by praising the dead. In giving, for instance, a commissionof chef justice to Bushrod Washington, it have to be in considerationof his integrity, and science in the laws, and of the servicesrendered come our nation by his illustrious relation, &c. Acommission come a descendant the Dr. Franklin, as well as being inconsideration that the suitable qualifications that the person, must addthat that the great services rendered by his illustrious ancestor, BnFr, by the breakthrough of science, by inventions helpful to man, &c.I am not certain that we ought to adjust all ours names. And during theregal government, sometimes, indeed, lock were provided throughadulation; however often likewise as the price of the merit the the times,sometimes for services rendered the colony. Perhaps, too, a namewhen given, should be understood a sacred property. Ns promised friend a betterworld2016.orgter on Christianity, i m sorry I have actually notforgotten. Top top the contrary, that is due to the fact that I have reflected top top it,that I find much more time vital for it 보다 I have the right to at presentdispose of. I have actually a see of the topic which must displeaseneither the reasonable Christian nor Deists, and also would mediate manyto a character they have too hastily rejected. I perform not understand that itwould mediate the _genus irritabile vatum_ who are all in armsagainst me. Your hostility is ~ above too exciting ground come besoftened. The delusion into which the X. Y. Z. Plot shewed itpossible to press the people; the effective experiment made under theprevalence of the delusion ~ above the clause of the constitution, which,while the secured the flexibility of the press, covered additionally the freedomof religion, had provided to the clergy a very favorite hope ofobtaining an facility of a particular kind of Christianity thro"the U. S.; and as every sect trust its own form the true one,every one perhaps hoped for his own, yet especially the Episcopalians& Congregationalists. The returning good sense of our countrythreatens abortion to your hopes, & they believe that any part ofpower confided come me, will certainly be exerted in opposition to their schemes.And they believe rightly; for I have actually sworn ~ above the altar the god,eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the psychic of man.But this is every they have to fear from me: & enough too in theiropinion, & this is the cause of their printing lie pamphbetterworld2016.orgsagainst me, forging conversations because that me with Mazzei, Bishop Madison,&c., which are absolute falsehoods there is no a situation of truth torest on; falsehoods, too, the which i acquit Mazzei & Bishop Madison,for they are men of truth. But enough of this: that is much more than i have before committed topaper on the subject of every the lies that has been preached andprinted against me. I have actually not watched the occupational of Sonnoni i beg your pardon youmention, yet I have seen one more work top top Africa, (Parke"s,) i m sorry Ifear will certainly throw cold water ~ above the really hopes of the girlfriend of freedom.You will certainly hear one account of an attempt at insurrection in this state.I to be looking with stress and anxiety to check out what will be it"s effect on ourstate. We room truly to it is in pitied. I are afraid we have little chance tosee you at the federal city or in Virginia, and also as little atPhiladelphia. It would be a great treat to get you here.


You are watching: I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility
