When a piece of ground is wanted for a use important to the State, I know the State has a right to take it from the owner on paying the full value of it; but certainly the legislature has no right to compel a freeholder to part with his land to any of his fellow-citizens, not to deprive him of the use of it, in order to accomplish one or more of is neighbors in the prosecution of their particular trade or business. Such an act, by violating the rights of property, would be a most dangerous precedent."
John Jay, Letter to Peter Jay Munroe, March 2, 1812
