2858. FAITH (Public), Cherishing.—

think it very certain that a decided majority
of the next Congress will be actuated by a
very different spirit from that which governed
the two preceding Congresses. Public faith
will be cherished equally, I would say more,
because it will be on purer principles; and
the tone and proceedings of the government
will be brought back to the true spirit of the
Constitution, without disorganizing the machine
in its essential parts.—
To Thomas Pinckney. Ford ed., vi, 214.
(Pa., April. 1793)
