6322. PAINE (Thomas), Republicanism.—[continued].

Would you believe it
possible that, in this country, there should be
high and important characters who need your
lessons in republicanism, and who do not heed
them? It is but too true that we have a sect
preaching up and panting after an English constitution
of king, lords, and commons, and
whose heads are itching for crowns, coronets,
and mitres. But our people * * * are firm and
unanimous in their principles of republicanism,
and there is no better proof of it than that they
love what you write and read it with delight.
The printers season every newspaper with extracts
from your last, as they did before from
your first part of the Rights of Man.—
To Thomas Paine. Ford ed., vi, 87.
(Pa., June. 1792)
