3699. HENRY (Patrick), Declined office.—[continued].

Most assiduous court is
paid to Patrick Henry. He has been offered
everything which they knew he would not accept.
Some impression is thought to be made,
but we do not believe it is radical. If they
thought they could count upon him, they would
run him for their Vice-President; their first
object being to produce a schism in this State.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. iv, 148. Ford ed., vii, 89.
(M. July. 1796)
