6145. OFFICE-HOLDERS, Elections and.—[further continued] .

I have received two addresses
from meetings of democratic republicans
at Dover, praying the removal of Allen
McLane. * * * If he has been active in electioneering
in favor of those who wish to subvert
the present order of things, it would be
a serious circumstance. I do not mean as
to giving his personal vote, in which he ought
not to be controlled; but as to using his influence
(which necessarily includes his official
influence) to sway the votes of others.—
To Cæsar A. Rodney. Ford ed., viii, 154.
(W. 1802)
