Jonathan Dayton in the United States Senate (March 19, 1804)

March 19, 1804.
1

To avert the evils arising from a perpetual state of mutation, and from the agitation of the public mind whenever it is discussed, the Constitution had wisely provided for the establishment of a permanent seat, vesting in Congress exclusive legislation over it.
