Georgetown languishes.
The smile is hardly covered now when the
federal towns are spoken of. I fear that our
chance is at this time desperate. Our object,
therefore, must be, if we fail in an effort to
remove to Georgetown, to endeavor then to get
to some place off the waters of the Chesapeake
where we may be ensured against Congress considering
themselves as fixed.—
