8293. TAXATION, French.—

It is confidently
believed * * * that the stamp
tax and land tax will be repealed, and other
means devised of accommodating their receipts
and expenditures. Those supposed to be
in contemplation are a rigorous levy of the
old tax of the deux vingtièmes on the rich,
who had in a great measure withdrawn their
property from it, as well as on the poor, on
whom it had principally fallen.—
To John Jay. Washington ed. ii, 272.
(P. 1787)
