4175. JUDGES, Venality of French.—

Nor should we wonder at * * *[the] pressure[for a fixed constitution in 1788-9] when we consider the monstrous abuses of
power under which * * *[the French] people were ground to powder; when we pass
in review * * * the venality of the judges
and their partialities to the rich.—
Autobiography. Washington ed. i, 86. Ford ed., i, 118.
