6009. NOTES ON VIRGINIA, Slavery and.—[continued].

I send you a copy of the
“Notes on Virginia”. * * * I have taken
measures to prevent its publication. My reason
is that I fear the terms in which I speak of
slavery and of our [State] Constitution May
produce an irritation, which will revolt the
minds of our countrymen against reformation
in these two articles, and thus do more harm
than good.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. i, 347. Ford ed., iv, 53.
(P. 1785)
