2469. ELECTIONS (Presidential, 1800), Burr and.—[continued].

Had the election terminated
in the elevation of Mr. Burr, every
republican would, I am sure, have acquiesced
in a moment; because, however it might have
been variant from the intentions of the voters,
yet it would have been agreeable to the Constitution.
No man would more cheerfully have
submitted than myself, because I am sure the
administration would have been republican,
and the chair of the Senate permitting me to
be at home eight months in the year, would, on
that account, have been much more consonant
to my real satisfaction.—
To Thomas McKean. Washington ed. iv, 368. Ford ed., viii, 12.
(W. March. 1801)
