4083. JAY TREATY, House of representatives and.—[further continued].

Randolph seems to have
hit upon the true theory of our Constitution;
that when a treaty is made, involving matters
confided by the Constitution to the three
branches of the Legislature conjointly, the
Representatives are as free as the President
and Senate were, to consider whether the national
interest requires or forbids, their giving
the forms and force of law to the articles
over which they have a power.—
To Wm. B. Giles. Washington ed. iv, 125. Ford ed., vii, 41.
(M. Nov. 1795)
