8809. VICE-PRESIDENCY, Ceremony and.—

I hope I shall be made a part of no
ceremony whatever. I shall escape into the
city as covertly as possible. If Governor
Mifflin should show any symptoms of ceremony,
pray contrive to parry them.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 167. Ford ed., vii, 116.
(M. Jan. 1797)
