2735. ERROR, Indulgence to honest.—[continued].

I shall often go wrong,
through defect of judgment. When right,
I shall often be thought wrong by those
whose positions will not command a view of
the whole ground. I ask your indulgence
for my own errors, which will never be intentional;
and your support against the errors
of others, who may condemn what they
would not if seen in all its parts.—
First Inaugural Address. Washington ed. viii, 5. Ford ed., viii, 5.
