Money can purchase soldiers; — soldiers can produce money; and both together can do any thing.  It is this depravation of manners, this wicked propensity, my dear countrymen, against which you ought to provide with the utmost degree of prudence and circumspection.

— The Impartial Examiner, Essay I, Virginia Independent Chronicle, February 1788.
