1389. [further continued].

Congress have desired
to be invested with the whole regulation of
their trade, and forever; and to prevent all
temptations to abuse the power, and all fears
of it, they propose that whatever moneys shall
be levied on commerce, either for the purpose
of revenue, or by way of forfeitures or penalty,
shall go directly into the coffers of the
State wherein it is levied, without being
touched by Congress. From the present temper
of the States, and the conviction which
your country [England] has carried home to
their minds, that there is no other method of
defeating the greedy attempts of other countries
to trade with them on equal terms, I
think they will add an article for this purpose
to their Confederation.—
To David Hartley. Washington ed. i, 425. Ford ed., iv, 94.
