2487. ELECTIONS (Presidential, 1800), A President pro tem.—

The federalists appear
determined to prevent an election, and
to pass a bill giving the government to Mr.
Jay, appointed Chief Justice, or to Marshall as
Secretary of State. Yet I am rather of opinion
that Maryland and Jersey will give the seven
republican majorities.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 344. Ford ed., vii, 473.
(W. Dec. 1800)
