2441. ELECTIONS, Federal Interference with.—[continued].

I proposed soon after
coming into office to enjoin the executive officers
from intermeddling with elections, as
inconsistent with the true principles of our
Constitution. It was laid over for consideration;
but late occurrences prove the propriety
of it, and it is now under consideration.—
To De Witt Clinton. Ford ed., viii, 322.
(W. Oct. 1804)
