  Robert Morris from superintendent of finance to the fallen promoter of

Robert Morris relinquished his position as superintendent of finance in 1784 and also turned down the position of first secretary of the treasury, which he was offered in 1787 but he continued in politics, notably as a US Senator for Pennsylvania.
