Mr. Ellery, of Rhode Island, moved for an adjournment to Annapolis
till June, and then to meet at Trenton. The latter clause was stricken
out, and the words, "for the place of their temporary residence," were
joined to "Annapolis;" but the amended motion was lost*

The selection of Trenton, or its immediate vicinity, seemed now
to be most probable : but the minority against the Delaware loca-
tion was so large and influential, that Mr. Gerry proposed as a
compromise that Congress should have two residences, to be occu-
pied alternately; the one to be on the Delaware, as already deter-
mined, and the other on the Potomac, at or near Georgetown. On
the twentieth, Mr. Gerry further proposed, that until the buildings on
the Delaware and Potomac were prepared, the residence of Congress
should be alternately in Trenton and Annapolis. On the twenty-first,
Mr. Gerry's entire motion was adopted. f

In December, 1783, Congress met at Annapolis, and the question
of the Federal city was reopened. Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Monroe en-
deavored to have Alexandria substituted for Georgetown, as the
Southern capital, but Virginia was the only State that voted aye.t

Congress met in Trenton, November 1, 1784. On the tenth Decem-
ber, South Carolina moved that: "It is expedient for Congress to
adjourn from their present residence." This was negatived on the
eleventh, and on the twentieth it was resolved to take measures for
procuring suitable buildings for national purposes, and a sum, not
exceeding $100,000, was appropriated for that object. It was also
determined to be inexpedient to erect such buildings at more than one

* "Trenton was next proposed, on which question the votes were divided by
the river Delaware." "The vicinity of its falls is to become the future seat of
the Federal Government, unless a conversion of some of the Eastern States can
be effected." Madison to Randolph, October 13, 1783- (Madison Papers, vol. i.,

t This act was the occasion of one of Judge Francis Hopkinson's humorous pub-
lications, in which, under the title of "Intelligence Extraordinary," he described the
new mechanism of government as a pendulum vibrating between Annapolis and
Trenton. (Hopkinson's Works, vol. i., 178.)

t August 22, 1784, a memorial was presented to the New Jersey Senate from
John Coxe and others, citizens of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, praying that ten
miles square might be laid out on the Delaware, and furnishing the draft of
such a tract.


place at that time. Mr. Pinckney made an unsuccessful motion to have
the arrangements for alternate sessions at Trenton and Annapolis
repealed, and on the twenty-third December an ordinance was intro-
duced, providing for the appointment of three commissioners, to lay
out a district of not less than two, nor exceeding three miles square,
on the banks of either side of the Delaware, not lower than Lamber-
ton, nor more than six miles above it, for a Federal town.

The whole discussion was renewed on a motion for the appro-
priation. An effort was made to substitute Georgetown for Lamber-
ton, but the ordinance was finally adopted that the Commissioners,
without delay, should have the Federal city laid out in some district
not more than eight miles above or below the lower falls of the Dele-
ware ; and enter into contracts for erecting and completing, "in an
elegant manner," a Capitol, houses for the President of Congress, and
principal officers of the government, with a ''due regard to the accom-
modation of the States with lots for houses for the use of their dele-
gates, respectively," and that Congress should hold its sessions in
New York until the public buildings were ready for their reception.
The immediate outlay of the Commissioners was not to exceed $100-
000. Congress adjourned on the day after the decision, after acknowl-
edging the attentions of the Legislature of the State, and the exertions
of the inhabitants of the town in providing the members with accom-

The order of the day for February 8, 1785, was to elect Commis-
sioners under the ordinance of December 23, 1784. Various efforts
were made by the Southern delegates to delay the progress of the
measure, but the majority persevered, and Philip Schuyler, Philemon
Dickinson, and Robert Morris were elected Commissioners, and upon
Mr. Schuyler's declining, John Brown was put in his place. None
of these were members of Congress. Mr. Dickinson was an inhabi-
tant of Trenton, and Mr. Morris had an estate on the opposite side
of the Delaware, now the town of Morrisville.f

When the first appropriation to the Commissioners was called for
by the Committee of Supplies (April 5, 1785)— "Federal buildings,
$30,000" — Mr. Grayson, of Virginia, moved its refusal, but he was
overruled. Then, on motion of Mr. Pinckney, that vote was recon-

* The landholders near the falls were not insensible to their opportunity. In
the New Jersey Gazette of May, 1783, and many following months, Joseph Higbee
offers for sale "a valuable tract of land, containing three hundred acres, situate
within three miles of Trenton, in the county of Burlington and township of
Nottingham, and within a mile of Lamberton, where it is expected the Federal
town will be built."

t Washington foresaw the disadvantages of Lamberton. On the day of the
above resolution, he wrote from Mount Vernon, to the President of Congress,
in a private letter: "By the time your Federal buildings on the banks of the
Delaware, along the point of a triangle, are fit for the reception of Congress, it
will be found that they are very improperly placed for the seat of the empire,
and will have to undergo a second erection in a more convenient one." (Writ-
ings, vol. ix., 95.)


sidered, and the report was recommitted. Here the matter rested
until the twenty-second September, when the appropriation of $30,000
coming before the house, Mr. Gerry moved to make it the whole sum
of $100,000, but none of the States except Massachusetts and New
Jersey voted for it; upon which, on motion of Mr. Hardy, of Vir-
ginia, the item was entirely stricken out of the bill, which was a
virtual repeal of the ordinance.

The question of location was not revived after this until May 10,
1787, when Mr. Lee, of Virginia, moved that the Treasury Board take
measures for erecting public buildings, for the accommodation of Con-
gress, at Georgetown on the Potomac. This was lost.

In a few months (September, 1787) the Constitution of the United
States was adopted, and the Congress of the Confederation expired.
The Constitution contained a provision implying that the seat of Gov-
ernment should be placed in a district "not exceeding ten miles square,"
which should be ceded to the exclusive legislation of Congress. Offers
came in from all quarters. The Convention of New Jersey, which
ratified the Constitution, recommended to the Legislature to enter
into the competition for the Capital, which they did by a vote, Sep-
tember 9, 1788, offering the requisite territory.

In September, 1789, Mr. Boudinot, in the House of Representatives,
once more proposed "the banks of either side of the river Delaware,
not more than eight miles above or below the lower falls," but it failed
by a vote of four to forty-six; and so Dr. Cowell's legacy to the
United States lapsed.

I may close the history by stating that the main question was finally
settled by a compromise between the North and the South. The
Northern States being anxious for the assumption of the debts of
the several States by the General Government, and the Southern
States being opposed to that measure, and the two sections being in
like manner on opposite sides as to the locality of the Capital, there
was a mutual bargaining of votes. The scheme is said to have origi-
nated with Robert Morris and Alexander Hamilton (Secretary of
the Treasury), and consummated at the dinner-table of Mr. Jefferson
(Secretary of State) by Messrs. White* and Lee, of Virginia, who
agreed to change their votes on the assumption question, in considera-
tion of Morris and Hamilton undertaking to effect a corresponding
change in the Northern votes for the Capital ; accordingly, the Assump-
tion measure passed the House by a vote of thirty-four to twenty-
eight, and the Potomac site by thirty-two to twenty-nine.f In July,

* "With a revulsion of stomach almost convulsive," says Jefferson in his Ana.

f Hildreth's United States, vol. iv., 210-216. Mr. Jefferson said in 1818 that he
was "most ignorantly and innocently made to hold the candle" in this game (Ana.,
Works, vol. ix., p. 92), and again, "I was duped into it by the Secretary of the
Treasury, and made a tool for forwarding his schemes, and of all the errors of
my political life, this has occasioned me the deepest regret." (Letter quoted in
Hildreth, vol. iv., 363.)


1790, it was determined to have the seat of Government on the Poto-
mac, and in 1791, Washington selected the spot which now bears his
name. According to the terms of the act, Congress remained in Phila-
delphia until December, 1800.*

* "We are to remove before the first of December to Philadelphia, and, if we
live so long, in ten years to the Indian place with the long name on the Potomac."
