3703. HENRY (Patrick), Foe of Constitution.—

Henry is the avowed foe of the new
Constitution. He stands higher in public estimation [
in Virginia] than he ever did, yet he
was so often in the minority in the present
assembly that he has quitted it, never more to
return, unless an opportunity offers to overturn
the new Constitution.—
To William Short. Ford ed., v, 136.
(Dec. 1789)
