Magruder stated: To whatever incomprehensible spirit of delirium the circumstances may have attributed its origin, yet it is a fact, that about the year 1789, or 1790, a plan was in agitation to separate Kentucky from the Union and attach it to the Spanish government of Louisiana.

A memorial was drawn up addressed to the executive authority of the colony expressing the advantage of a union, which was reciprocated in the same terms on the part of the Spanish governor. The chimerical plan proceeded so far in its effects upon the public mind, that a proposition to form the state into an independent government was introduced into a convention held about that time to form articles of separation from the State of Virginia.

The author of the book in which this statement was made was at the time a resident of Lexington, Ky. He was a staunch Republican and an intimate political and personal associate of the men to whom the movement in question was attributed- and, writing soon after its occurrence, his opportunities for correctly ascertaining the facts from the men who were fully acquainted therewith were most ample.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
