Applause the gentleman refers to the sentiments of distinguished revolutionary men. Many of them i do endorse White others Are false in philosophy Aad false in fact. But when i make a a amp again i stand by it. The gentleman however makes a bargain then spurns it it if Jefferson entertained certain notions on slavery what had that to do with Tho Federal Constitution ? not the convention which framed the Constitution adjust shut question ? is not Liis the fact ? or. Singhq my it no such thing. They expunged tub word slavery from the document.
