8911. WAR, Power to declare.—[further continued] .

decide the question of war on the affirmative
side, neither ought it to do so on the negative
side, by preventing the competent body from
deliberating on the question. [509]
To James Madison. Washington ed. iii, 519. Ford ed., vi, 192.
(1793)

 
[509]
