7466. RETRENCHMENT, Salutary.—

These views of reducing our burdens are formed
on the expectation that a sensible, and at the

in our habitual expenditures. For this purpose,
those of the civil government, the army and
navy, will need revisal.—
First Annual Message. Washington ed. viii, 9. Ford ed., viii, 119.
(Dec. 1801)
