7684. RUTLEDGE (John), Chief Justice.—

The rejection of Mr. Rutledge [to be
Chief Justice] by the Senate is a bold thing;
because they cannot pretend any objection to
him but his disapprobation of the [Jay] treaty.
It is, of course, a declaration that they will receive
none but tories hereafter into any department
of the government.—
To W. B. Giles. Washington ed. iv, 127. Ford ed., vii, 44.
(M. Dec. 1795)
