2424. EDUCATION, Taxes for.—[continued].

If the Legislature would
add to the literary fund a perpetual tax of a
cent a head on the population of the State, it
would set agoing at once, and forever maintain,
a system of primary or ward schools,
and an university where might be taught, in
its highest degree, every branch of science
useful in our time and country; and it would
rescue us from the tax of toryism, fanaticism,
and indifferentism to their own State, which
we now send our youth to bring from those
of New England.—
To Charles Yancey. Washington ed. vi, 517. Ford ed., x, 4.
(M. 1816)
