1. Max Farrand, The Framing of the Constitution of the United States ( 1913), p. 204.
2. Wilfred E. Binkley, President and Congress ( 1947), pp. 21-22. Binkley adds, however, that "the framers probably greatly overestimated the inherent strength of the lower house and left it too weak...Is it not possible [he asks] that in their eagerness to establish a strong executive the framers left the lower house an 'incurably deficient and inferior organ of government'?" (pp. 22-23).
3. Charles Warren, The Making of the Constitution ( 1937), p. 400.
4. Ibid., p. 618.
CHAPTER 2

5. Fisher Ames, op. cit., p. 126.
6. Madison, Writings, V, p. 373.
7. The language used here is taken ad verbatim from that in the second rule adopted by the House on April 7, 1789. It was probably influenced by the practice of the House of Commons where it is still a rule "that no Member who has a direct pecuniary interest in a question shall be allowed to vote upon it: but, in order to operate as a disqualification, this interest must be immediate and personal, and not merely of a general or remote character." ( Sir T. Erskine May's Parliamentary Practice, 15th Edition, 1950, p. 418)
8. Ames, Works, Vol. 1, p. 64.
9. Ibid., p. 61.
10. House Journal, Vol. 1, May 11, 16, August 18, 1789, and April 26, 1790.
