6057. OFFICE, Exclusion from.—[continued].

Exercising that discretion
which the Constitution has confided to
me in the choice of public agents, I have been
sensible, on the one hand, of the justice due
to those who have been systematically excluded
from the service of their country, and
attentive, on the other, to restore justice in
such a way as might least affect the sympathies
and the tranquillity of the public mind.—
To William Judd. Washington ed. viii, 114.
(Nov. 1802)
