Страница 79 - I could have most anxiously wished to avoid ; but it was not to be shunned. We have not sought this controversy ; it has met us, and been forced upon us. In my judgment, the law has been disregarded, and the Constitution transgressed ; the fortress of liberty has been assaulted, and circumstances have placed the Senate in the breach ; and, although we may perish in it, I know we shall not fly from it.
