TO WILSON CARY NICHOLASJ. MSS.
Nov. 29. 98.
The more I have reflected on the phrase in the paper you shewed me, the more strongly I think it should be altered. Suppose you were instead of the invitation to cooperate in the annulment of the acts, to make it an invitation “to concur with this commonwealth in declaring, as it does hereby declare, that the said acts are, and were ab initio, null, void and of no force, or effect”. I should like it better. Health, happiness, and Adieu.
