7124. QUAKERS, English attachments of.—[continued].

I sincerely wish the circulation
of the letters of “Cerus and Amicus
among the Society of Friends may have the effect
you expect, of abating their prejudices
against the government of their country. But
I apprehend their disease is too deeply seated;
that identifying themselves with the mother
Society in England, and taking from them implicitly
their politics, their principles and
passions, it will be long before they cease to be
Englishmen in everything but the place of their
birth, and to consider that, and not America, as
their real country.—
To Mr. Baldwin. Washington ed. v, 494.
(M. 1810)
