3582. GOVERNMENTS (American), Happy.—[continued].

With all the defects of
our constitutions, whether general or particular,

those of Europe, is like a comparison of
heaven and hell. England, like the earth, May
be allowed to take an intermediate station.—
To Joseph Jones. Washington ed. ii, 249. Ford ed., iv, 438.
