8145. STATE RIGHTS, Surrender of.—

Can it be believed, that under the jealousies
prevailing against the General Government,
at the adoption of the Constitution, the

preserving order, of enforcing moral duties
and restraining vice within their own territory?—
To William Johnson. Washington ed. vii, 297. Ford ed., x, 231.
(M. 1823)
