Wie are citiycns of a Nation. as well as of a State;
and as the former is the greatest, it clainmt the high

I know it i* faid, ld will be fald agin and ain.
that Congref have not In all cafes done oftice to parti-

I am forry fime S'ates have fo much reason to com-

to obtain redrefs, au re conlfftent with the Confedera-

pil ar which fupports our ftrengih and glcry.
In regard a claim for justice, it i hardly to be
irappofel that Congref would remain deal to tle call
ol reason and justice, if the injured State perfevered in
prefling home its demand.-f it should be faid, that
the experience of Maffachufetr contraditd this idea,
for that fhe has been preling Congrefs many year for
jufticr in the matter of the old money.-I would reply
that this infance it greatly injurious to the faith of
Coingreft and of the ftras, and the delayof justice in
this particular has hurt our nation more than ten times
the wmrth of the money,-but by way ofi arfe, it has
heen faid, hy Members of Congref from other iates,
that ailthonili Mafflchufetts did at fome periods writ
to Cnro refa on thi fubjcdd, be never pushed her claim
with that teal and fpirt, which is commonly exhibited
hy the other St;tee. when they have important claim.
And as numerous objeds of importance are always be.
fore Congtf,.. no claim from a flare will gain attention
un-is the claimant manifrfl. a perfrvering energy, that
will not give up the cafe of truth and juice. And it
is clear, to me it leaf), that Mafachufetre would long
since have obtained juffice, if her reprefnratives, for
years palt, had done their duty. Her claim is jufico
ntelf, and the faith of the fates is unitedly, and fepa
rarely, pledged for the redemption of the money.
Thcrofore, if the perfTycrec in preffig her claim, at

of juilicr in thi matter, in part at leafr, to the want of
energy in their Reprcfertativem. But fo long as the
