Excerpt from The Life and Correspondence of Rufus King, Vol. 5: Comprising His Letters, Private and Official, His Public Documents and His Speeches; 1807-1816

Though many of the letters of Mr. King's correspondents are long, it has been thought best to give them as they were written, without leaving out any portions which might be necessary clearly to express the Opinions of the writers; the object has been to prevent any suggestion of omissions with a view of modifying these opinions. The Editor, therefore, desires to say that in all cases where the marks indicate that something has been left out, the matter excluded is either repetition of thoughts elsewhere expressed, or entirely irrel evant, and perhaps of personal interest only.

In the first portion of the present volume Mr. King, though enjoying the pleasures of a quiet life in the coun try, is shown to be warmly alive to, and interested in, the questions which deeply agitated the whole country; later on, during the war, when sent by his State to the United States Senate, he sought to bring about an early peace, but deemed it his duty to support the Government in all meas ures which might strengthen it financially and place its army and navy in such condition as to make the terms of peace honorable to the country; and when the war was over, to provide for the future welfare of the land, which had been so sadly marred by the wounds given to its commerce and by the general mismanagement of public affairs. These evils he could not and did not fail to see, but, opposed as he was to the ruling powers, he was most earnest in his endeavors to so modify proposed measures of relief as to bring from them the greatest benefits.
