Excerpt from Thoughts and Details on Scarcity, Originally Presented to the Right Hon. William Pitt: In the Month of November, 1795
The wisdom, which is canonized by death, is consulted with a fort of sacred veneration. A casual remark, or an incidental maxim in some ancient author, an interesting narrative, or a pointed anecdote from the history of past times, even though they bear but a remote and general application to the exigency of our own immediate situation, are caught up with eagerness, and remembered with delight.
