1530. CONGRESS, Executive influence.

—The republicans complain that the influence and patronage of the Executive are to become
so great as to govern the Legislature.
They endeavored a few days ago to take away
one means of influence by condemning references
to the heads of departments. They
failed by a majority of five votes. They were
more successful in their endeavor to prevent
the introduction of a new means of influence,
that of admitting the heads of departments to
deliberate occasionally in the House in explanation
of their measures.—
To Thomas Pinckney. Washington ed. iii, 493. Ford ed., vi, 143.
(Pa., 1792)
