8825. VINDICATION, Seeking.—

A desire
to leave public office, with a reputation
not more blotted than it has deserved, will
oblige me to emerge at the next session of our
Assembly and, perhaps, to accept of a seat in
it. But as I go with a single object, I shall
withdraw when that shall be accomplished.—
To Edmund Randolph. Washington ed. i, 313. Ford ed., iii, 50.
(M. 1781)
