is not to be found would naturally be held by gentlemen in Administration on such an occasion) You say suppose that other spots
may be found equally proper and convenient:

and, if that will satisfy as you desire it, we
will insist it. Thus, was a Such and this such alone was the language of uncertainty
prudence and good faith: this such and this such alone was the language
equally consistent with the engagements to one party, and
with the wishes of the other: it was actually was therefore the
language of Administration: the conclusion is a necessary one: this and this alone was the fair
language of Administration: it was the fair and
and the only construction of whatever words the occasion
called for could have called for.
