Carolina, that all America is at present govern'd by such wiseacres as you represent some of them to be; our last assembly was but a poor epitome of what you have seen it, but judge what the next will be when I tell you, eight or nine of its best and wisest members are taken out of it, to fill up the Council and other departments of Government; I really am deeply affected at the prospect before us, and see no way to extricate ourselves from the impending ruin unless Heaven in its goodness would work a miracle by making fools tractable. This can no otherwise be done, for obstinacy you well know, is most commonly an attendant on ignorance;" expressing his alarm over accounts he has received "that there was a party form'd ags't our General, both in and out of Congress, in favor of the Saratoga Hero.

Indeed I fear it, and venture to foretell that if you have not your eyes and ears about you, America, or at least this part of it will soon be in very great confusion;" adding that he would very much like to be in constant communication with him
