The E-Clause . . .


The 1777 E~Clause at Article VI of the Articles of Confederation

No State, without the Consent of the united States, in congress assembled, shall send any embassy to, or receive any embassy from, or enter into any conferrence, agreement, alliance, or treaty, with any King prince or state; nor shall any person holding any office of profit or trust under the united states, or any of them, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state; nor shall the united states, in congress assembled, or any of them, grant any title of nobility.

~               ~               ~

The 1788 E~Clause at Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution

“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”

The 1812 E~Clause with Teeth = 13th Amendment

On December 9th, 1812, the E~Clause was given TEETH when it was ratified to become the 13th Amendment, stripping any one of Citizenship who breached it’s provisions.

“If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive or retain, any title of nobility or honour, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.”

This 13th Article of Amendment was printed in both the 1815 Statutes at Large and the 1825 – Military Laws of the United States . . . and was published as a lawful, fully ratified Article for over 65 years in State Statute books that can still be found on Google Books.
