6110. OFFICES, Midnight appointments.—[further continued] .

The last Congress established
a Western Judiciary district in Virginia,
comprehending chiefly the Western
countries. Mr. Adams, who continued filling
all the offices till nine o'clock of the
night, at twelve of which he was to go out
of office himself, took care to appoint for this
district also. The judge, of course, stands
till the laws shall be repealed, which we
trust will be at the next Congress. But as
to all others I made it immediately known
that I should consider them as nullities, and
appoint others.—
To A. Stuart. Washington ed. iv, 393. Ford ed., viii, 46.
