843. Benjamin Russell to Henry Van Schaack
Boston, 24 April 17881

By Major Brown I have received the money for the pamphlets sent you—and, with the sincere thanks of the publishers of the Debates, for your goodness, send you, pr stage, 12 vols. more—we should be happy glad could they be disposed of.

I am exceeding happy that the federalists of Berkshire are not in [the?] minority, as I perceive by the art[icle] you so obligingly favoured me with—and for which I return you my thanks—From all accounts, there is a happy prospect of a complete triumph of honesty and federal principles over villainy and antifederalism in almost every part of the Continent.
