5325. MONARCHY, Advocates for.—[continued].

It cannot be denied that
we have among us a sect who believe that the
English constitution contains whatever is perfect
in human institutions; that the members
of this sect have, many of them, names and
offices which stand high in the estimation of our
countrymen. I still rely that the great mass of
our community is untainted with these heresies,
as its head. On this I build my hope that we
have not labored in vain, and that our experiment
will still prove that men can be governed
by reason.—
To George Mason. Washington ed. iii, 209. Ford ed., v, 275.
(Pa., 1791)
