Letter to Charles Hammond, August 18, 1821: The Federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body, (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little to-day and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of Jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one.
