Excerpt from History of the Federal Government: For Fifty Years; From March, 1789 to March, 1839

Sib z - My limited personal intercourse with you would not fully justify me, perhaps, in the liberty I assume, by this public address to you; and by thus seeking, at least by implication, your patronage of a work intended for general circulation in all parts of the United States. And yet it has been my lot to witness your patriotic and honorable exertions, in the highest branch of the national councils, in favor as well of individuals, whose services, in the struggle for liberty and independence, so justly entitled them to the remuneration of the government, as of the welfare, honor, and prosperity of the nation. In the measure of a generous allowance to those worthy veterans, you took a conspicuous part, which neither they, nor their children, nor the country, can ever forget.
