4942. MAJORITY, Oppressive.—

I have
seen with deep concern the afflicting oppression
under which the republican citizens of
Connecticut suffer from an unjust majority.
The truths expressed in your letter have been
long exposed to the nation through the channel
of the public papers, and are the more
readily believed because most of the States
during the momentary ascendancy of kindred
majorities in them, have seen the same spirit
of oppression prevail.—
To Thomas Seymour. Washington ed. v, 43. Ford ed., ix, 29.
(W. 1807)
