3571. GOVERNMENT, Too much.—[continued].

I think, myself, that we
have more machinery of government than is
necessary, too many parasites living on the
labor of the industrious. I believe it might
be much simplified to the relief of those who
maintain it.—
To William Ludlow. Washington ed. vii, 378.
(M. 1824)
