8909. WAR, Power to declare.—[further continued] .

The question of war, being
placed by the Constitution with the Legislature
alone, respect to that made it my duty
to restrain the operations of our militia to
those merely defensive; and considerations involving
the public satisfaction, and peculiarly
my own, require that the decision of that
question, whichever way it be, should be pronounced
definitely by the Legislature themselves.
Paragraph for President's Message. Ford ed., vi, 144.


This is not dated, but was probably written in
December, 1792. The message was entrely different.—Note in Ford edition.
