7512. REVOLUTION (French), Flight of the King.—[continued].

You have heard of the peril into which the French Revolution is
brought by the flight of their King. Such are
the fruits of that form of government which
heaps importance on idiots, and of which the
tories of the present day are trying to preach
into our favor.—
To Edward Rutledge. Washington ed. iii, 285. Ford ed., v, 376.
(Pa., 1791)
