145. ADMINISTRATION, Successors in.—[further continued].

I am now so near the
moment of retiring, that I take no part in affairs
beyond the expression of an opinion. I
think it fair that my successor should now
originate those measures of which he will be
charged with the execution and responsibility,
and that it is my duty to clothe them with the
forms of authority.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. v, 420. Ford ed., ix, 243.
(W. Jan. 1809)
