1120. CANAL, Santee and Cooper Rivers.

-As to the Santee and Cooper rivers
canal, I shall be glad to do anything I can to
promote it. But I confess I have small expectations
for the following reason: General
Washington sent me a copy of the Virginia
act for opening the Potomac. * * * It was
pushed here [Paris] among the moneyed men
to obtain subscriptions, but not a single one
could be obtained. The stockjobbing in this
city offered greater advantages than to buy
shares in the canal.—
To M. Terrasson. Washington ed. ii, 383.
(P. 1788)
