Yrs. with great esteem & regard ALS , RG 217, Segregated Documents,...

Seeing the Debates on the subject of Democratic Societies I called at your house to state some facts. It is true that the opposition to the Excise laws began from causes foreign to Democratic societies, but it is well ascertained by proof in the course of Judiciary investigations that the insurrection immediately is to be essentially attributed to one of those Societies sometimes called the...
