Excerpt from A Letter to the Hon. John Quincey Adams: Occasioned by His Letter to Mr. Otis
Not less unnatural to you is the cause - you have capons ed, than the'persons with whom you have leagued. 1 hope, for the honour of our species, that you are not so fully acquainted, as F ederalists in general are, with the full bulk of its turpitude -but that you are in some degree aware of it, is evident from the vain efforts, the struggles and plunges that you make to evade and apologize. Without knowing it, you plead guilty for yourself and your cause in every page by your solicitude to avoid suspicion, you shew that you are conscious your motives deserve to be suspected; and by your having recourse to palpable mis representation of facts, and to a shameful suppressionof truth, you virtually confess your cause to be untenable.
