6736. POLITICS, Influencing.—

I have
made great progress into the MS., and still
with the same pleasure. I have no doubt it
must produce great effect. But that this
may be the greatest possible, its coming out
should be timed to the best advantage. It
should come out just so many days before
the meeting of Congress as will prevent suspicions
of its coming with them, yet so as
to be a new thing when they arrive, ready
to get into their hands while yet unoccupied.
* * * I will direct it to appear a fortnight
before their meeting unless you order otherwise.
It might as well be thrown into a
churchyard, as come out now.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., vi, 404.
(Pa., 1793)
