3581. GOVERNMENTS (American), Happy.—

With all its defects, and with all
those of our particular governments, the inconveniences
resulting from them are so
slight in comparison with those existing in
every other government on earth, that our
citizens may certainly be considered as in the
happiest political situation which exists.—
To General Washington. Washington ed. ii, 250.
(P. Aug. 1787)
