4082. JAY TREATY, House of representatives and.—[further continued] .

The House of Representatives
has manifested its disapprobation
of the treaty. We are yet to learn whether
they will exercise their constitutional right of
refusing the means which depend on them
for carrying it into execution. Should they
be induced to lend their hand to it, it will be
hard swallowing with their constituents; but
will be swallowed from the habits of order
and obedience to the laws which so much
distinguish our countrymen.—
To James Monroe. Ford ed., vii, 59.
(M. March. 1796)
