Strana 268 - ... to be applied and accounted for by the president of the United States, intended as part of the price, was considered as conveying the sanction of Congress to the acquisition proposed.
Strana 178 - If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.
