378. APPLAUSE, Courting.—

I am not
reconciled to the idea of a Chief Magistrate
parading himself through the several States,
as an object of public gaze, and in quest of
applause which, to be valuable, should be
purely voluntary. I had rather acquire silent
good will by a faithful discharge of my duties,
than owe expressions of it to my putting
myself in the way of receiving them.—
To James Sullivan. Washington ed. v, 102. Ford ed., ix, 77.
(W. 1807)
