8817. VICE-PRESIDENCY, Preference for.—

It seems possible * * * that you
may see me in Philadelphia about the beginning
of March, exactly in that character
which. if I were to reppear at Philadelphia,
I would prefer to all others; for I change the
sentiment of Clorinda to “L'alte temo,
l'humile non sdegno”.

To Mr. Volney. Washington ed. iv, 158.
(M. Jan. 1797)
