2742. ERROR, Pointing out.—

I would
be glad to know when any individual member
[of Congress] thinks I have gone wrong in
any instance. If I know myself, it would
not excite ill blood in me, while it would
assist to guide my conduct, perhaps to justify
it, and to keep me to my duty, alert.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. ii, 327. Ford ed., iv, 474.
(P. 1787)
