2938. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, State Governments and.—[further continued] .

Maintain the line of power
marked by the Constitution between the two
coordinate governments, each sovereign and
independent in its department; the States as
to everything relating to themselves and their
State; the General Government as to everything
relating to things or persons out of a
particular State. The one may be strictly
called the domestic branch of government,
which is sectional but sovereign; the other,
the foreign branch of government, coordinate
with the other domestic, and equally sover
eign on its own side of the line.—
To Samuel H. Smith. Ford ed., x, 263.
(M. 1823)
