1072. CALUMNY, Forgotten.—

The expression
respecting myself, stated in your letter
to have been imputed to you by your calumniators,
had either never been heard by me,
or, if heard, had been unheeded and forgotten.
I have been too much the butt of such falsehoods
myself to do others the injustice of permitting
them to make the least impression on
me. My consciousness that no man on earth
has me under his thumb is evidence enough
that you never used the expression.—
To General Wilkinson. Washington ed. v, 573.
(M. 1811)
