5558. MORRIS (Gouverneur), Opposition to.—

The opposition to Gouverneur Morris
was upon the following principles: 1. His
general character, being such that we would
not confide in it. 2. His known attachment to
monarchy, and contempt of republican government;
and 3, his present employment abroad
being a news vender of back-lands and certificates.
We took the yeas and nays on his appointment
and eleven voted against it.—
To Archibald Stuart. Ford ed., v, 454.
(Pa., 17921792)gt;
