Summary:
Has seen Jefferson at Philadelphia, who has fallen in the esteem of many in northern and eastern states resulting in a want of harmony in public councils. Feels that parties are neither "necessary or salutary in our government." He also visited Washington at Mount Vernon, who was fortunate in the "veneration and confidence" attached to his administration. Lastly he saw James Madison, "who once sustained so conspicuous a character on the theatre of American politics."
