Roger Sherman in the House of Representatives (May 25, 1790)

May 25, 1790.
It is objected that this is a new project — and not mentioned in the Constitution. The novelty of it is no just objection against adopting it — if the measure be just. It was mentioned in the general convention — but it was not thought necessary or proper to insert it in the Constitution, for Congress would have sufficient power to adopt it if they should judge it expedient.
