Excerpt from The Constitution of the United States of America, With an Alphabetical Analysis: The Declaration of Independence; The Articles of Confederation; The Prominent Political Acts of George Washington; Electoral Votes for All the Presidents and Vice-Presidents
Several distinguished authorities and individuals having, in the plenitude of their liberality, honored the author and compiler with their sentiments on the subject-matter of the work, he claims the indulgence of the friends of the Constitution in giving them place in this edition, believing, that a salutary cﬂ'ect may be produced by the sanction of their special approbation, and the expression of their several views of the importance of an extended dissemination of that instrument. These may impress, in terms more unexceptionable, the obligation incumbent on every intelligent citizen to make him self acquainted with its provisions, restrictions, and limitations, and of imparting, so far as the ability may extend, a knowledge of this paramount law of our country to the minds of the rising generation.
The length of time required in the ordinary course of business, for obtaining a practical knowledge of the Operations of govern ment, by persons entering into public life, and their embarrassments for the want of a convenient mode of reference to the various sources of information, have suggested the utility of preparing, as a part of this work, and as germain to its design, a means of collect ing and rendering available to the public interest the experience and information acquired in this respect, in the progress of time, by attention to the business of legislation in the public service. The five new chapters in this edition may therefore be considered an essay, to be improved and extended hereafter, with a view, not only to add to the intrinsic matter proper to be read and studied by the great body of American citizens, but to render it peculiarly a code mecum to the statesman and legislator, the ministering to whose individual convenience must, necessarily, result in facilitat ing the performance of arduous public duty, and in promoting, in no inconsiderable degree, the public interests.
