6855. POWERS, Unlimited.—

I have no
idea of entering into the contest, whether it
be expedient to delegate unlimited powers to
our ordinary governors? My opinion is
against that expediency; but my occupations
do not permit me to undertake to vindicate
all my opinions, nor have they importance
enough to merit it.—
To Noah Webster. Washington ed. iii, 203. Ford ed., v, 257.
(Pa., 1790)
