8987. WASHINGTON (City), Foundation of.—[further continued]..

On the question of residence,
the compromise proposed is to give it to
Philadelphia for fifteen years, and then permanently
to Georgetown by the same act. This is
the best arrangement we have now any prospect
of, and therefore the one to which all our
wishes are at present pointed. If this does not
take place, something much worse will; to wit,
an unqualified assumption [of the State debts],
and the permanent seat on the Delaware.—
To T. M. Randolph. Ford ed., v, 186.
