1341. COERCION OF A STATE, Law of Nature and.—[continued].

It has been so often said, as to be generally believed, that Congress have
no power by the Confederation to enforce
anything, for example, contributions of
money. It was not necessary to give them
that power expressly, for they have it by the
law of nature. When two parties make a
compact, there results to each a power of
compelling the other to execute it.—
To E. Carrington. Washington ed. ii, 217. Ford ed., iv, 424.
(P. Aug. 1787)
