Patrick Henry to William Grayson (March 31, 1789)

Federal and anti seem now scarcly to exist; for our highest toned Feds say we must have the amendments. But the Enumeration stops at direct Taxation Treatys Trade &c. &c., so that I perceive it will be a Question of prudence.1 How far the Temper of the Times will carry the condiscention of party or whether apprehensions will extort concession to any salutary purpose I from my secluded situation cannot guess—You perhaps can tell me how far the appearances tend that way. I hear nothing worth telling you.
