788. Lynde Walter to Gideon White, in receipt of letter. He regrets that the supplies of flour and cider were not good by the time White got them. Postscript relative to the schoolmaster at Shelburne: ''I knew not the Man from Adam until he called on me before he went to Shelburne I then gave him my opinion fully as to the practicability of the Plan and the Issue has justified my predictions - I am sorry for it indeed - a House divided cannot stand, your exertions for the common good have been uncommonly exerted and I think has given you sufficient cause to be henceforward the private Man - you should Remember the Motto of Robinsons pamphlet after the Election. 'where fraud prevails &c I do not mean to say there is fraud in the present rulers of our deserted Village but substitute pride and then the fact is as clear as the sun at noon day - we are here on the large scale much as you are on the small - Dissention & Cabal is the order of the Day & I think the Demos rather gain ground." Holograph.
