In 1805, he was elected as a Republican to the Ninth and Tenth Congresses, serving until his resignation in 1807. He was then Attorney General of Massachusetts, (1807-10). Moving to Canada, in 1815, he practiced law and won a seat in the Canadian Provincial Assembly. However, his political opponents petitioned against him taking his seat on the grounds that he had taken an oath of allegiance to the United States and was of immoral character. He remained in Canada, until his death at age 69.
