Gouverneur Morris

William Howard Adams

Yale University Press

This chapter talks about how Morris had always been interested in scientific agriculture and naturally threw himself into the predictable demands of the farm, managing it with a firsthand knowledge that surprised some of his city friends. With that decisive Morris manner, before the month was out he had an architect on hand to begin planning a new house on the foundation of the old one, eventually laying out some $60,000 in improvements. By the time Morris arrived in Manhattan, an international crisis had developed with the French government over its attacks on American shipping as a part of the war with Britain. To Morris, the most serious threat to the Constitution and the national government by the new administration was the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801.
