No American Can Be A Loyal Subject?

Letter from Henry Bostwick (1) to Robert Nichol, 31st March 1812 (excerpt below):

"Having heard that it is currently reported, that you have made use of the following expression in my presence, that is--'That no American can be a Loyal Subject.'"

"... I never heard you express yourself to that effect...".

The Bostwicks and Ryersons were related.
