In a government, as popular as that of the United States, it is of high importance, that every class of citizens should be honestly informed of those things, which involve their dearest interest. The diffusion of knowledge facilitates the arduous task of rulers, who depend so essentially on the spirit of the governed, to bring about those measures, which tend to the preservation of their...

I understand that the part of South America where Mr. Peppin the writer of the enclosed is going to settle for the purpose of superintending a commercial British house is Brasil.

My delay has...
From circumstances which it is out of my power to controul I am prevented from making a different communication from the present; neither would any other consideration but a sense of Public duty and interests have induced me to intrude upon your Excellency, and which I trust will be thought a sufficient apology.
