These same people—that is, the people of the several States—he says in a letter to Lafayette, April 28, 1788, retain everything they do not, by express terms, give up. In a letter written to Benjamin Lincoln October 26, 1788, he refers to the expectation that North Carolina will accede to the Union, and adds, Whoever shall be found to enjoy the confidence of the States so far as to be elected Vice-President, etc.—showing that in the confederated Government, as he termed it, the states were still to act independently, even in the selection of officers of the general government.
