Thomas Jefferson 1823 Letter to Judge Johnson

1823 — letter to Judge William Johnson

Category: Federalism

[T]he States can best govern our home concerns and the general government our foreign ones. I wish, therefore…never to see all offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold at market.
