1750. CONSULS, Native Citizens for.—[further continued].

The determination to
appoint natives only is generally proper, but
not always. These places are for the most
part of little consequence to the public; and if
they can be made resources of profit to our
ex-military worthies, they are so far advantageous.
You and I, however, know that one
of these novices, knowing nothing of the
laws, or authorities of his port, nor speaking
a word of its language, is of no more account
than the fifth wheel of a coach.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. vi, 552.
(M. 1816)
