7762. SEDITION LAW, Unconstitutional.—

I found a prosecution going on
against Duane for an offence against the Senate,
founded on the Sedition act. I affirm that
act to be no law, because in opposition to the
Constitution; and I shall treat it as a nullity, wherever it comes in the way of my functions.—
To Edward Livingston. Ford ed., viii, 58.
(W. Nov. 1801)
