4255. KENTUCKY RESOLUTIONS (1798), Draft of.—

I enclose you a copy of
the draft [271] of the Kentucky resolves. I think
we should distinctly affirm all the important
principles they contain, so as to hold to that
ground in future, and leave the matter in such
a train as that we may not be committed absolutely
to push the matter to extremities, and yet
may be free to push as far as events will render
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 258. Ford ed., vii, 288.
(M. Nov. 17, 1798)


The Resolutions are printed in the Appendix to
this volume. The principles, &c., declared in them
are arranged under appropriate titles.—Editor.
