497. ARMY, Control over.—

I like the
declaration of rights as far as it goes, but I
should have been for going further. For instance,
the following alterations and additions
would have pleased me: * * * Article 10.
All troops of the United States shall stand
ipso facto disbanded, at the expiration of the
term for which their pay and subsistence shall
have been last voted by Congress, and all officers
and soldiers, not natives of the United
States, shall be incapable of serving in their
armies by land except during a foreign war.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iii, 101. Ford ed., v, 113.
(P. Aug. 1789)
