5499. MONROE (James), Slanderous attack on.—

I have reason to believe they are
preparing a batch of small stuff, such as refusing
to drink General Washington's health,
speaking ill of him, and the government, withdrawing
civilities from those attached to him,
countenancing Paine, to which they add connivance
at the equipment of privateers by
Americans. * * * We are of opinion here
that Dr. Edward's certificate * * * should
be reserved to repel these slanders—
To James Monroe. Ford ed., vii, 232.
(Pa., April. 1798)
