1508. CONGRESS, Business Men in.—

We want men of business [in Congress]. * * * I am convinced it is in the power of any man
who understands business, and who will undertake
to keep a file of the business before
Congress and press it, as he would his own
docket in a court, to shorten the sessions a
month one year with another, and to save in
that way $30,000 a year. An ill-judged modesty
prevents those from undertaking it who
are equal to it. I really wish you were here.—
To Cæsar A. Rodney. Ford ed., viii, 187.
(W. Dec. 1802)
