My dear II
In my last letter, I suggested some of the ad
vantages, which not only this village and its iin-
idiatc vicinity, but the state would derive from
these sprint's. At first thoucht it mav seem to
you a whimsical notion, that, they will also be of

such an idea is not wholly visionary. . Indepen
dent of the medical virtues of these fountains,

are other considerations still more important.

pleasure any event, which migh weave a new tie

The festive board and social class, although thev

most successful intercessors for conciliating and
preserving friendship. You know of many a
wealthy politician in the ancient dominion, who
depends, more on the fascinations of his bottle,
than of his talents and attainments, for the ore-
servation of his influence. In the moments of
conviviality, we forget our picjudices and bury
our animosities. When I am takinar wine with

norance of each other; and that many hundreds,
not to say thousands, will leave the springs this
season, with more knowledge and with corrected
opinions of the character, manners, and habits of
the different sections of our country. It will be
lound, that the people of the south are not all ty

that although different modes of education, and
local habits, may -have produced some striking
