1832. CORRUPTION, Extirpating.—

would prefer a native Frenchman [for the
office of surveyor and inspector for the port
of Bayou St. John], if you can find one proper
and disposed to cooperate with us in extirpating
that corruption which has prevailed in
those offices under the former government,
and had so familiarized itself as that men,
otherwise honest, could look on it without
horror. I pray you to be alive to the suppression
of this odious practice, and that you
bring to punishment and brand with eternal
disgrace every man guilty of it, whatever be
his station.—
To Governor Claiborne. Washington ed. iv, 551.
(W. 1804)
