7313. REPUBLIC (American), Washington and.—

I was happy to see that Randolph
had, by accident, used the expression
“our republic”, in the [President's] speech.
The President, however, made no objection to
it, and so, as much as it had disconcerted
him on a former occasion with me, it was
now put into his own mouth to be pronounced
to the two Houses of Legislature. [417]
The Anas. Washington ed. ix, 183. Ford ed., i, 270.
(Nov. 1793)


Edmund Randolph, Attorney General, had been
selected to write the speech, or message, to Congress.—Editor.
