6179. OFFICE-HOLDERS, Removals.—[further continued].

No one will say that all
should be removed, or that none should. Yet
no two scarcely draw the same lines. * * * Persons who have perverted their offices to
the oppression of their fellow citizens, as
marshals packing juries, attorneys grinding
their legal victims, intolerants removing
those under them for opinion's sake, substitutes
for honest men removed for their republican
principles, will probably find few
advocates even among their quondam party.
But the freedom of opinion, and the reasonable
maintenance of it, is not a crime, and
ought not to occasion injury.—
To Gideon Granger. Ford ed., viii, 44.
(W. March. 1801)
