1887. COURTS (County), Election of Judges.—

I acknowledge the value of this
institution [County Courts]; that it is in
truth our principal executive and judiciary,
and that it does much for little pecuniary reward.
It is their self-appointment I wish to
correct; to find some means of breaking up
a cabal, when such a one gets possession of
the bench. When this takes place, it becomes
the most afflicting of tyrannies, because
its powers are so various, and exercised
on everything most immediately around us.—
To John Taylor. Washington ed. vii, 18. Ford ed., x, 52.
(M. 1816)
