 I am induced to trouble you with this letter not only from my belief that this is an occasion when you should not conceal your opinions from your Countrymen, but that if you remain silent, or commit not to paper for their future information your animadversions on these extraordinary assumptions of power, that the omission will be construed into your acquiescence in them—particularly after having given so many proofs of your deep solicitude for the preservation in all its purity of that Constitution of which you were the chief Author and ablest expounder. With the most profound admiration and regard I am truly & sincerely yours. \\ I am induced to trouble you with this letter not only from my belief that this is an occasion when you should not conceal your opinions from your Countrymen, but that if you remain silent, or commit not to paper for their future information your animadversions on these extraordinary assumptions of power, that the omission will be construed into your acquiescence in them—particularly after having given so many proofs of your deep solicitude for the preservation in all its purity of that Constitution of which you were the chief Author and ablest expounder.
