7121. PUBLICITY, War intelligence.—[continued].

A fair and honest narrative
of the bad, is a voucher for the truth
of the good. In this way the old Congress
set an example to the world, for which the
world amply repaid them, by giving unlimited
credit to whatever was stamped with
the name of Charles Thomson. It is known
that this was never put to an untruth but
once, and that where Congress was misled by
the credulity of their General (Sullivan).
The first misfortune of the Revolutionary
war, induced a motion to suppress or garble
the account of it. It was rejected with indignation.
The whole truth was given in all
its details, and there never was another attempt
in that body to disguise it.—
To Matthew Carr. Washington ed. vi, 133.
(M. 1813)
