779. BARLOW (Joel), Proposed History by.—[further continued].

I felicitate you on your
destination to Paris [as minister]. * * * Yet
it is not unmixed with regret. What is to become
of our post-revolutionary history? Of
the antidotes of truth to the misrepresentations
of Marshall? This example proves the wisdom
of the maxim, never put off till to-morrow
what can be done to-day.—
To Joel Barlow. Washington ed. v, 587. Ford ed., ix, 322.
(M. April. 1811)
