733. BANKS, Private Fortunes and.—[continued].

It is cruel that such revolutions
in private fortunes should be at the
mercy of avaricious adventurers, who instead
of employing their capital, if any they
have, in manufactures, commerce, and other
useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden
all the interchanges of property with their
swindling profits, profits which are the price
of no useful industry of theirs.—
To Dr. Thomas Cooper. Washington ed. vi, 295.
(M. 1814)
