472. ARISTOCRACY, Liberty and.—

The complicated organization of kings, nobles,
and priests, is not the wisest or best to effect
the happiness of associated man. * * * The
trappings of such a machinery consume by
their expense those earnings of industry they
were meant to protect, and, by the inequalities
they produce, expose liberty to sufferance.—
To William Johnson. Washington ed. vii, 291. Ford ed., x, 227.
(M. 1823)
