Philada April 12. 1828
I send you by this mail some of my recent lucubrations, of which I request your acceptance.
I flatter myself into the hope that some of the facts & reasonings on them, will fully establish the soundness of the Hamiltonian System of policy, of which I have been the unceasing advocate for nine years. Until it is fully adopted by this Country, we shall never enjoy the high degree of prosperity for which God & nature designed us. With great respect, Your obt. Hble. Servt
