3338. FUTURE LIFE, Felicity of.—[continued].

But these are speculations
which we may as will deliver over to
those who are to see their development. We
shall only be lookers on, from the clouds above,
as now we look down on the laborers, the hurry
and bustle of the ants and bees. Perhaps in
that super-mundane region, we may be amused
with seeing the fallacy of our own guesses, and
even the nothingness of those labors, which
have filled and agitated our own time here.—
To John Adams. Washington ed. vii, 105. Ford ed., x, 109.
(M. 1818)
