Excerpt from Moral and Political Truth: Or Reflections Suggested by Reading History and Biography

The piece, which I offer to the public, is, I know, defective it may want method, and a proper connexion and arrangement of sentiment it may want harmony, elegance and correctness it may in some parts be too redundant; and in others too brief; yet, with all its im perfections upon it, I have thought it more advisable to publish it now, than to wait till time, health 99d leisure, would afford an opportunity to revise it. If I had delayed its publication for that purpose, I might per haps have rendered it more accurate and by that means have saved myself from some portion of that abuse, which the malignant will use, to gratify, themselves and effect their evil designs. But if the sentiments of this little work would be more useful, at the present time, in their dishabille, than they would be in a more elegant dress at a future period, it is most proper to publish them now.
