8255. TARIFF, Burdens of.—

I wish it
were possible to increase the impost on any
articles affecting the rich chiefly, to the
amount of the sugar tax, so that we might
relinquish that at the next session. But this
must depend on our receipts keeping up. As
to the tea and coffee tax, the people do not
regard it. The next tax which an increase
of revenue should enable us to suppress, should
be the salt tax, perhaps; indeed, the production
of that article at home is already undermining
that tax.—
To Albert Gallatin. Ford ed., viii, 171.
(M. Sep. 1802)
