Important Letter!
The following Letter was afl,tally witK-n to
a vrry member of the Society of
Fnenus. I ls contents are of the very first
consequence at this time. It c-ifains wlri,
is tr '-e, and what cugkt to roule everv man
who dees not mean to give ti}> his By ifntf rr ".
ties, ,nd perhjjjs Ins country to violence
and war; to step forth aitd matnuin the re
e'tilton of J hn Adams : It being gfn«-|
rally con by every fnber and i
rel'giong nian, that the dimiffal of M,.!
Adams will U the signal v] war and dis- '
union :
MY Friend,
HAVING long been of opinion; that it was
; duty every man owed to himfelf, his family,
nends and country, not only to give his vote
or the eledion of civil ruins, but also to use
uci means as his knowledge and judgment
iittatcd, for the right direction of others, I
:onltantly give up (ome portion of my time and
mention to this objeft, whenever an election of
my importance is made for public office, under
>ur tree and happy government; there is no
ither way for good citizens to secure to them
c its the advantage ot it, but by exerting their
ult influence in promoting the eledion of such
*2* as ' 10 their opinion, are best qualified
0 nil the public departments and to administer
i£ht ond iufi.ce to the people : It has therefore
lot a little lu!prized and grieved me, on many
ryrng occahons, when the friends t.) govern
ment and good order are exerting all their
trength to frullrate the designs of wicked and
iangeious men, who wilh, by means of deceit
md misrepresentation, to bring the country into
.oufufion by setting the people against their own
eprefentatives; I fay, it has given me much pain
o obt'erve how indifferent and unwilling many
eale v.-h ch ought to preponderate : What can
icter you from any fort of participation in mea
uri.; which directly or indircdtly arc connected
■vith war: Far be it from me to undertake tc
lfopprove of the sensibility which influences yoi
n tliat refpeift: Would to God, that every !.u
nan heart was actuated by a principal so gentle
ind so agreeable to the ipirit of that religion o
which lam a sincere believer : Wars, however
.vill come, and it has pleased Providence to raifi
ip those, who, in this refpeft, are infiuencec
o execute his pleafurej but, my tiiend, wha
s there in the measures which relate merely tc
•ivil gcrcrnment, of which you are members, anc
without which, you could enjoy no fecuriti
.ither for secular or religious pofTellions; I fay
what is there to prevent you from taking such ;
*>tacealte and jijl part in those quellions, as mai
n your judgment, contribute to the maintenance
-hofen by the people; if bad men we may ex
pec't the greatcit evils; it good men are chosen
we may look for social and individual happineli
and prosperity : Is it not an obvious duty, then
for every man who lias a voice in the ekiftions
to go and give it in favor of fucn men and mea
fuics, as he, in his conscience, thinks will be
most for his own and the public good ? You 100 l
upon this as right and neceflary in your owr
cumbent on you as members of a civil commu
nity ? We weli kr.o-.v that civil government i
ordained of heaven, and that God permits it t<
be a bleiTing or a curfc occording as it is adminif
tered well or lii : How then, any ccnfeien
tious man Hand by and when in his power t(
by indifference or neglect, loic the opportunity
and thereby be accessary to mui h public diftrel:
and calamity :1 f the life or the inter >- of you
child, your neighbor, or friend, were to depenc
upon your exertions, and your vdte, would yor
not use the one and give the other for their relief
and what difference in the cafe?— Your chi dren
your neighbors, and friends, nav, thousands o
your fellow creatures are all deeply interested ir
the fflitc of public elediions for civil officers
Why should you withdraw from rendering tha
fervicc which is in your power ?
1 know it has beer, sometimes said, that dec
tions are conducted with too much heat, tha
't is difagrceable to take any part in them—but
what good thing Is not abused ? Shall we make
crits r Shall we not countenance and support it
because it has occafioncd so much jarring, anc
violence, and war ? This principle atfed upon
would drive us out of the world; for, what oc
cupation can we follow; what intercourse engage
in, which will not lead us into difagrecable c;r
cumitances.and which have net occasioned much
misery ? My friend, I know that what I have
fuggclted here, mull' be quite unnecefTary for
your conviction : I know you take a proper in
terest in the support of civil government and faft
throw out those ideas for the perusal of any o
your acquaintance who are indifferent on the
score of eletfions, and luffer their best civil right;
and enjoyments to depend upon the will of othei
people; for, it is evident, that when bad men
or bad measures get a head for want of prop:
diligence in the eleftors— the electors who tl. i:
negledt their rights and interefls are /eally crl
The leading objeft, however, of this letter to
you, is to impref■ upon you, theJtngular imparl
ance of the ensuing elettion for a Prejident. I
need not tell you, that such has been the unwea
ried induflry, and so numerous the falfities and
misrepresentations against the federal government,
that it will require the greatest exertions to pre
| vent the peopie from overturning it, by the elec-
I t ! on r fhotTias JeJferfun y for I look upon it
that (uch an event vvill (hake the foundations of
| the confederacy; tl,at Mr. JeJferfon has f T
diiqualifications which render him wholly unfit
to-be at the head of a chrifliaa community, yo\i
will be convinced by the perusal of the if.rk' J
parophlat which is written by as pious and Je rn»
ed a pmiftcr of Jesus Chrilt, as perhaps »y in
this or any Other country, and which proves him,
torn his own writings, an unbeliever in cbriftiani
y , but that difquafificttioti would operate flow
indadiibelief in the scriptures, and desirous ol
feing a g"vernme,it m 'winch r.o religious opin
ons are held," (tins is his own language) would
'erhapsinlefstime than four years, by theinfluence
m means in their power,bring the people in this
:ountry to adopt Tom Paine's /Ige of Reafor, in
)Uce of the Bible. But what I mean to repre
ent to you as so formidable in his eleftion, is its
Political consequence to this country. You well
know the character and views of that difptrafe
ind unprincipled party which have unceasingly
and rebellion. Th -fe are the people (conncfling
with them some honefl but deluded men) who
arc advocating Jeftsrfjn, and who, if he is elec
ted, will direct him in the government of t!i?3
country: In one word; the government will
be in the hands of the jacuLias-—you know as well
as I do what chara&ers this drfcription includes;
to wit i French agents—Brit'fh and Ir'fh reO£-
coun tries—infidels bankrupts reliefs dema
gogues—the laty—the intemperate—the vicious
and ignorant of this country; that these ai"e the
tort of people who have constantly clamored
ifeft to every one. Only look around within
your own observation and you will want no
proof (it tins—rhat there i: heie and tliirc,
;,mr,n ;: them, a man of good clkratfer, mificd
by artifice or biassed by prejudice, cannot be dis
puted ; but such men will be thrown aside when
their unprincipled affociatcs get into power,
well know that this faßion have sworn ha
tred to the Euglj/h government, and are deter
mined on war with that power as soon as they
of the great men in the southern ftatc-s, being
deeply in debt to British merchants, are disposed
to a war as the means of flopping payment—l
am n:,t certain that even Air. ; Jrf n has ye,
paid off the great debt he owed at the peacet
and which he then offered to pay off partly in
negroes. Besides these, there are great numbejs
of French who wilh to fee us at war with Grest
Britain ; and mo ft of the Irifi and Enghfh fu
gitives from justice, who being obliged to leave
their own country for cr;rr>es are now detei iiiin
ed to be avenged, if they can, by exciting the
Americans to war. Most of the scandalous and
mifchev:. is aewf'papeis, such as the Aurora,
the Lxr.mmcr, U :. v.hich are circulated far and
wide are carriedon by these vet.omous emigrants;
as I (aid before, all these belong to the Jfftrfou
party, and will certainly drive us to. war the
lirft opportunity —an opportunity will readily of
!er ; tii ir jiartv has only to reiafc to execute ail
article of the treaty; or to fend away uie En

P' r ' "" >i • <xl judgment think it will be diffi

The ruinous confluences of a war at this time

value, and the produce of it having no market,
will rot in the gran try, or, rather the farmer
will not raise beyond the confamption of the
country. Vv iiat difeoment tn,s will produce,
ind how bar 1 it will be tnon the landed mttreft,
to bear the whole expeive, both of the federal
and state governments, and also the v burdens ne
cessary to carry on the war, with wheat at 5/
a biithel, I lexve you to judge. Indeed, I think
it would be imprafticableto keep the confederacy
together under such circumitances.—Some of
the (bites would, likely, to rid themselves of a
coram-a defence wirhdraw from the union, make
} ea :e with Great Britain, and leave the others
to submit or fight it out alone. In fiiort, the
-• nfequtnett of such a war cannot be calculated :
Great Britain would be at little expense in it;
her flips are now on the ocean, at lea ft/•wj
hundred ftiips Of war—only 50 frigates, stationed
tribution, annihilate our commerce, ruin the
upon these states such an additional load of debt,
and so retard their prosperity, that a whole cen
tury might not restore them to their present happy
condition. Is it not, then, an object of the
to take no step which may tend to produce a -war
with Great Britain ? Now we are at peace—now
our trade flonrifhes our revenues ire supplied
our agriculture encreafes—wealth, enjoyments,
every civil and religious privileges are (howerel
upon us. If we would keep where we are, we
