8812. VICE-PRESIDENCY, Jefferson and.—

I was not aware of any necessity of
going on to Philadelphia immediately, yet I had
determined to do it, as a mark of respect to
the public, and to do away the doubts which
have spread, that I should consider the second
office as beneath my acceptance.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iv, 161. Ford ed., vii, 107.
(M. Jan. 1797)
