4835. LOUISIANA, Government for.—[further continued].

In order to lessen the
causes of appeal to the Convention, I sincerely
wish that Congress at the next session
may give to the Orleans Territory a legislature
to be chosen by the people, as this will
be advancing them quite as fast as the rules
of our government will admit; and the evils
which may arise from the irregularities which
such a legislature may run into, will not be
so serious as leaving them the pretext of
calling in a foreign umpire between them
and us.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., viii, 314.
(M. Aug. 1804)
