3861. IMPEACHMENT, Juries and.—[further continued].

The object in supporting
this engraftment into impeachments is to
lessen the dangers of the court of impeachment
under its present form, and to induce
dispositions in all parties in favor of a better
constituted court of impeachment, which I
own I consider as an useful thing, if so com-posed
as to be clear of the spirit of faction.—
To Henry Tazewell. Ford ed., vii, 195.
