5331. MONARCHY, Advocates for.—[further continued] .

In the course of our
[members of the Cabinet] conversation Knox,
stickling for parade, got into great warmth and
swore that our government must either be entirely
new modeled or it would be knocked to
pieces in less than ten years, and that, as it is
at present, he would not give a copper for it;
that it is the President's character, and not the
written Constitution, which keeps it together.—
The Anas. Washington ed. ix, 139. Ford ed., i, 222.
(Feb. 1793)
