James Wilson's powers of oration, the passion of his delivery and the logic he employed in debate, were commented on favorably by many members of the Congress.
He was, however, in a bind. Pennsylvania was divided on the issue of separation, and Wilson refused to vote against the will of his constituents.
Many members felt that it was hypocritical to have argued so forcefully and so long for Independence, only to vote against it when the occasion came.
Wilson, with the support of three other members who were sympathetic to his position, managed a delay of three weeks, so that he could consult with people back home.
When the vote came, he was able to affirm Pennsylvania's wish for Independence. Following the Declaration, Wilson's attention turned back to his state, where a new constitution was proposed.
He was strongly opposed to its form, and argued against it at every opportunity. This placed his office in jeopardy. He was recalled from Congress for about two weeks in but no one would take his place, so he was restored until the end of his term.
Wilson did not return home following his term. He stayed in Annapolis through the winter, settled in Philadelphia. He resumed some of his former law practice there, only now he consulted to corporations.
He was a leader in the Democratic-republican party. He assumed heavy debts investing in land that became liabilities with the onset of the Panic of — Of note was the failure in Pennsylvania with Theophilus Cazenove.
In debt, Wilson was briefly imprisoned in a debtors' prison in Burlington, New Jersey. His son paid the debt, but Wilson went to North Carolina to escape other creditors.
He was again briefly imprisoned , but continued his duties on the Federal judicial circuit. In , he suffered a bout of malaria and then died of a stroke at the age of 55, while visiting a friend in Edenton, North Carolina.
He was buried in the Johnston cemetery on Hayes Plantation near Edenton, but was reinterred in at Christ Churchyard , Philadelphia.
Tracing over the events of Wilson's life, we are impressed by the lucid quality of his mind. With this went a restless energy and insatiable ambition, an almost frightening vitality that turned with undiminished energy and enthusiasm to new tasks and new ventures.
Yet, when all has been said, the inner man remains, despite our probings, an enigma. In the lectures mentioned above, James Wilson, among the first of American legal philosophers, worked through in more detail some of the thinking suggested in the opinions issuing at that time from the Supreme Court.
He felt, in fact, compelled to begin by spending some time in arguing out the justification of the appropriateness of his undertaking a course of lectures.
But he assures his students that: "When I deliver my sentiments from this chair, they shall be my honest sentiments: when I deliver them from the bench, they shall be nothing more.
With this, he raises the most important question of the era: having acted upon revolutionary principles in setting up the new country, "Why should we not teach our children those principles, upon which we ourselves have thought and acted?
Ought we to instil into their tender minds a theory, especially if unfounded, which is contradictory to our own practice, built on the most solid foundation?
Why should we reduce them to the cruel dilemma of condemning, either those principles which they have been taught to believe, or those persons whom they have been taught to revere?
That this is no mere academic question is revealed with a cursory review of any number of early Supreme Court opinions.
Perhaps it is best here to quote the opening of Justice Wilson's opinion in Chisholm v. State of Georgia , 2 U. One of the parties to it is a State; certainly respectable, claiming to be sovereign.
The question to be determined is, whether this State, so respectable, and whose claim soars so high, is amenable to the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the United States?
This question, important in itself, will depend on others, more important still; and, may, perhaps, be ultimately resolved into one, no less radical than this 'do the people of the United States form a Nation?
In order to arrive at an answer to this question, one that would provide the foundation for the United States of America, Wilson knew that legal thinkers had to resolve in their minds clearly the question of the difference between "the principles of the constitutions and governments and laws of the United States, and the republics, of which they are formed" and the "constitution and government and laws of England.

United States: Constitutional differences with Britain. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley teases him, saying that he's too much of a "nice boy".
He is "incapable of turning away from any responsibility" and ultimately believes that "enduring pain for someone you care about" is what life is all about.
In contrast to his own personality and demeanor, Wilson generally finds friends in much darker and more dour people, such as his best friend House or girlfriend Amber.
In fact, House and Wilson are so very different from each other, that the close pair of friends can be said to be "polar opposites. This trait makes Wilson the only person who is willing to be with House on such a close and personal level of friendship.
This is because of how much he cares about other people, resulting in him wanting to be as involved with them as possible.
He has also demonstrated that he caves in to people's demands too easily and has trouble forming his own opinions. In the Season 3 episode, Family, House lashes out at Wilson for leaving a major decision up to the parents of a patient, and when asked what he would recommend, he simply tells the parents that it's their decision.
Also, in the Season 4 episode, Living the Dream, his girlfriend, Amber Volakis, tells him that the reason that his previous marriages didn't work out was because he did whatever they wanted and he ended up resenting them.
She also angrily tells him "don't you ever do that to me. In Season 8, Wilson even agrees to undergo debilitating chemotherapy in order to extend his lifetime for House's sake, despite not wanting the treatment for himself.
Wilson constantly enables House, including drug abuse and rude behavior, but on occasion stands up to him, usually for his own good, such as refusing to help him escape the psych ward in "Broken," or refusing to take the fall for a vandalism charge in Season 8.
While Wilson is normally a calm, serious person, he does have a humorous and playful side, as well.
He has also proven many times that he is more than capable of outwitting House with such examples being during the Season 2 episode, Safe where Wilson successfully sawed through House's cane so that it broke when House put his full weight on it, in Not Cancer , having learnt that House had a private eye to spy on him, Wilson deliberately hired a prostitute for a short visit and planted drug paraphernalia in his own garbage and then in the Season 8 episode, Perils of Paranoia where Wilson successfully locked House in the bathroom.
Despite his kind, and sometimes humorous nature, Wilson does occasionally get in a cranky mood. This typically happens when House pushes him to his limits, or when his issues just become difficult to handle, in general.
There have also been times where Wilson has expressed some outrage or anger towards Cuddy, House himself and even some of House's team, usually for some emotional failure.
This usually manifests in him "going off" on them, but is usually brief, and he typically makes up with them quickly.
This happens a number of times with House. He also suffers from depression, for which he has been clinically treated.
According to actor Robert Sean Leonard, he describes Wilson as "the saddest man alive Wilson also occasionally gets petty, such as with germs and keeping food safe, and with keeping his furniture clean.
In the season 6 episode, "Open and Shut," this proves to be a challenge with his attempt to get back together with Sam.
Wilson becomes annoyed when Sam puts the milk in the door shelf of the refrigerator, saying that it would be colder in the center, thus less likely to become spoiled.
Wilson originally tries to ignore his annoyance with Sam not being as cautious as he is, and says nothing to her about it at first. However, House notices and uses it to try to test and sabotage the strength of Wilson's re-emerging relationship with Sam, by off-setting the dishes in the dishwasher so that there's a big bowl on the bottom shelf that blocks the water from getting to the top shelf.
Thinking that Sam also did that, and not knowing it was actually House's "testing", Wilson finally asks Sam if she could be more cautious with germs, and also if she could use a coaster with her drinks on his furniture.
Sam becomes surprised when he brings up and asks for all of that at once, though eventually becomes glad that, unlike before, Wilson is expressing his annoyances.
However, Wilson's high standards for detail also prove useful. In the Season 6 Episode, "Wilson," he noticed that a Cancer patient, who was in remission, did not brag about his grand kids like usual.
While a seemingly minute happening, especially for a Cancer patient, Wilson thought that the patient's subtle increase of depression could be the result of new Cancer.
Having done some tests as a result, there indeed was a newly formed, small Cancerous mass in the patient's lung, which didn't end up doing much harm, due to the very early catch.
Wilson was then congratulated for this finding, from his attention to detail, at a board meeting. His perceptiveness also helps him accurately interpret things that House is saying, including when House lies or denies his true motives, on many occasions.
Wilson is a theatre geek who frequently references plays and musicals. Although he watches "trashy" tv with House - who prefers it as a distraction while he's thinking about a case or for pure entertainment value - Wilson loves classic cinema and puts up framed posters in his office for movies like "Vertigo", "Touch of Evil", and "Ordinary People".
The plots of those movies hint at insights into Wilson's character: a man on the verge of a breakdown who can't stop trying to save a woman he ends up losing; a flawed detective who walks with a limp; and an upper-middle-class family pretending they're coping with the loss of their oldest son while the mother emotionally shuts out her younger son who is struggling with his mental health and guilt in the aftermath.
The two friends are so close that gay references have been made to the relationship between the two characters of the show.
During season 2 in "The Mistake" House has made a joke about the relationship between them "I'm gay! Oh that's not what you meant.
It would explain a lot, though: no girlfriend, always with Wilson, the obsession with sneakers Verne Gay of Newsday described House's love for Wilson as "touching and genuine.
In an interview with E! However, the relationship is deep but platonic. One of the reasons House is so close to Wilson is that it appears it is the one relationship he has that he has no chance of ruining.
There is a security to their relationship, as shown by the fact that they always come back to each other despite some harsh events usually caused by House , as with Amber's death being inadvertently caused by House, or House crashing the car into Cuddy's home and breaking Wilson's wrist in the process.
House also occasionally manipulates, and plays games, to take advantage of and magnify Wilson's faults. Wilson and House do share similar tastes.
They are often attracted to the same women even Cuddy at one point. In the Season 5 episode, The Social Contract, Wilson himself mentions that their relationship is abnormal, that House prefers to tell the harsh truth rather than comfort Wilson with 'collaborative lies' as many people tend to do.
