1022. BURR'S (A.) TRIAL, Judiciary Partisanship.—[further continued].

The scenes which have been acted at Richmond are such as have never
before been exhibited in any country where all
regard to public character has not yet been
thrown off. They are equivalent to a proclamation
of impunity to every traitorous combination
which may be formed to destroy the Union;
and they preserve a head for all such combinations
as may be formed within, and a centre
for all the intrigues and machinations which
foreign governments may nourish to disturb us.
However, they will produce an amendment to
the Constitution which, keeping the judges independent
of the Executive, will not leave them
so, of the nation.—
To General Wilkinson. Washington ed. v, 198. Ford ed., ix, 142.
(M. Sep. 1807)
