3878. INCORPORATION, Enumerated powers and.—

[It has been] proposed to Congress
to incorporate an Agricultural Society.
I am against that, because I think Congress
cannot find in all the enumerated powers any
one which authorizes the act, much less the
giving the public money to that use. I believe,
too, if they had the power, it would
soon be used for no other purpose than to
buy with sinecures useful partisans.—
To Robert R. Livingston. Ford ed., vii, 493.
(W. Feb. 1801)
