685. BANKS, Aristocracy.—[continued].

The bank mania * * * is raising up a moneyed aristocracy in our
country which has already set the government
at defiance, and although forced at
length to yield a little on this first essay
of their strength, their principles are unyielded
and unyielding. These have taken
deep root in the hearts of that class from
which our legislators are drawn, and the sop
to Cerberus from fable has become history.
Their principles lay hold of the good, their
pelf of the bad, and thus those whom the Constitution
had placed as guards to its portals,
are sophisticated or suborned from their duties.—
To Dr. J. B. Stuart. Washington ed. vii, 64.
(M. 1817)
