Monto Oct. 30. 21.
Th:J. returns his thanks to mr De Wolf for his excellent oration on the 4th of July sent him either by mr De Wolf or some friend . he is happy to see an example set of of something solid substituted for the usual froth of that day. our citizens have much need of being reminded of the doctrines of this oration, for altho’ we religious freedom by law, we are it by public opinion . Th:J. is one of those who believes in the improvability of the of man, and anxiously prays for it.
