To Mr. Claypoole (Pennsylvania Packet) December, 1785

I have often observed paragraphs in your paper, in support or vindication of what always did appear to me a very wrong piece of policy, as well as an unconstitutional proceeding of the late Assembly-the violation of public faith in the repeal of the Bank charter.

I sent you last Friday a short paragraph on that subject, which you have not inserted. If it is the plan of your paper to make itself a party paper in the business I shall understand the reason of its not being put in. If it is not a party paper I do not see the reason why it is withheld.

Yours etc.

THO PAINE.
