1828. CORRUPTION, Cities and.—

When they [the people] get piled upon one another
in large cities, as in Europe, they will become
corrupt as in Europe. [109]
To James Madison. Ford ed., iv, 479.
(P. Dec. 1787)


In the Congress edition (ii, 332), the reading is:
“When we get piled upon one another in large cities,
as in Europe, we shall become corrupt as in Europe,
and go to eating one another as they do there.”
The Ford version is the correct one.—Editor.
