4564. LEE (Arthur), In the Treasury.—

I am sorry to see a possibility of Arthur Lee's
being put into the Treasury. He has no talents
for the office, and what he has will be employed
in rummaging old accounts to involve
you in eternal war with Robert Morris; and
he will, in a short time, introduce such dissensions
into the commission as to break it up.
If he goes on the other appointment to Kaskaskia,
he will produce a revolt of that settlement
from the United States.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. i, 348. Ford ed., iv, 53.
(P. 1785)
