5455. MONOPOLY, Tobacco.—[further continued]..

I think that so long as
the monopoly in the sale [of tobacco] is kept
up, it is of no consequence to us how they modify
the pill for their own internal relief; but, on
the contrary, the worse it remains, the more
necessary it will render a reformation. Any
palliative would take from us all those arguments
and friends that would be satisfied with
accommodation. The Marquis de Lafayette,
though differing from me in opinion on this
point, has, however, adhered to my principle of
absolute liberty or nothing.—
To Col. Monroe. Washington ed. i, 568. Ford ed., iv, 225.
