2503. ELECTIONS (Presidential, 1824), Constitutional Construction and.—

I hope
the choice [of the next President] will fall on
some real republican, who will continue the
administration on the express principles of the
Constitution, unadulterated by constructions reducing
it to a blank to be filled with what everyone
pleases, and what never was intended.—
To Samuel H. Smith. Ford ed., x, 264.
(M. Dec. 1823)
