8550. TREATIES, Power to make.—[further continued]..

I was glad to hear it
admitted on all hands in discussion [in the
Senate], that laws of the United States, subsequent
to a treaty, control its operation, and
that the Legislature is the only power which
can control a treaty. Both points are sound
beyond doubt.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 244. Ford ed., vii, 261.
(Pa., May. 1798)
