But, as it may be natural to enquire wherefore the publication of the private journal has been so long delayed and why this moment is selected for calling to it the public attention I have no objection to gratify a reasonable curiosity.In the winter session of Congress of 1817-18, I became acquainted with many respectable and eminent men of the late administration party, and frequently conversed with them upon the course of measures and the views and state of parties in the Eastern States during the war- with an unreservedness on both sides, which, in that period of ardent controversy, had been forbidden by the total alienation of social feeling among persons of contradictory politics.

In these conversations I first became persuaded that the clamors raised against the Convention(non vi sed saepe cadendo, and which the members of that body had treated with silent contempt, ) had made a profound impression upon many intelligent minds. On one of those occasions, a gentleman of eminent character and station gave me to understand that however individuals having access to the true sources of information, might be made satisfied of the innoxiousness of that assembly, yet the general propensity to suspicion in relation to their proceedings, would not subside, until the secret journal should be brought to light.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
