the President should be elected for six
years, and be forever after ineligible. I
would prefer the present term of four
years to any longer period than six. A
law should be passed by Congress fixing
the term of all officers appointed by the
President to six years and that they
should not be re-appointed for the next
six years. The public offices were trea
ted by the Sovereign People tor their own
benefit not to gratify the friends and
