5451. MONOPOLY, Tobacco.—[further continued].

I have received the
propositions of Messrs. Ross, Pleasants, &c., for
furnishing tobacco to the Farmers General; but
Mr. Morris had, in the meantime, obtained the
contract. I have been fully sensible of the baneful
influence on the commerce of France and
America, which this double monopoly will have.
I have struck at its root here, and spared no
pains to have the farm itself demolished, but it
has been in vain. The persons interested in it
are too powerful to be opposed, even by the
interest of the whole country.—
To Governor Patrick Henry. Washington ed. i, 515. Ford ed., iv, 137.
(P. 1786)
