3831. IMMIGRANTS, Aged.—

That it
may be for the benefit of your children and
their descendants to remove to a country
where, for enterprise and talents, so many
avenues are open to fortune and fame, I
have little doubt. But I should be afraid to
affirm that, at your time of life, and with
habits formed on the state of society in
France, a change for one so entirely different
would be for your personal happiness.—
To Jean Baptiste Say. Washington ed. vi, 436.
(M. 1815)
