268. ALEXANDER OF RUSSIA, Reform and.—[continued].

The information * * * as
to Alexander kindles a great deal of interest
in his existence, and strong spasms of the
heart in his favor. Though his means of doing
good are great, yet the materials on which he is
to work are refractory. Whether he engages
in private correspondences abroad, as the King
of Prussia did much, his grandfather sometimes,
I know not; but certainly such a correspondence
would be very interesting to those
who are sincerely anxious to see mankind
raised from their present abject condition.—
To Thomas Cooper. Washington ed. iv, 452. Ford ed., viii, 177.
(W. Nov. 1802)
