    I read in “The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers” that there were thirteen tertium quids. The only one’s I can ever find anything about are Randolph, Macon and Taylor. I was wondering who the other ten were?


    Good question. The thirteen identified “Quids” around 1806 were:

    John Randolph (VA), leader
    Nathaniel Macon (NC), leader
    Joseph Hopper Nicholson of MD, leader
    James M. Garnett of VA,
    Philip R. Thompson of VA,
    Abram Trigg of VA,
    Richard Stanford of NC,
    Thomas Spalding of GA,
    David Rogerson Williams of SC,
    Joseph Clay of PA,
    Christopher Clark of VA,
    Edwin Gray of VA,
    Joseph Bryan of GA,

    Taylor was not considered to be one of the “Quids” in congress but a sympathetic and powerful voice of support.


    Thank you Dr. McClanahan. I look forward to taking a closer look at these people.


    You’re welcome.
