997. BURR'S (A.) TREASON, Louisiana and.—[continued].

The native inhabitants were unshaken in their fidelity. But there was
a small band of American adventurers who had
fled from their debts, and who were longing to
dip their hands into the mines of Mexico, enlisted
in Burr's double project of attacking that
country, and severing our Union. Had Burr
had a little success in the upper country, these
parricides would have joined him.—
To Marquis de Lafayatte. Ford ed., ix, 65.
(W. May. 1807)
