I attribute War, and most of the artificial evils of life, to the Spirit of Despotism a rank, poisonous weed, which grows and flourishes even in the soil of liberty, when over-run with corruption. I have attempted to eradicate it, that the salutary and pleasant plants may have room to strike root and expand their foliage.
