Excerpt from A Brief Exposition of the Constitution of the United States: With an Appendix, Containing the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation, and a Copius IndexIn a country like this, where all have a share in the government, every one should be acquainted with its structure and principles. The Constitution, by which the government is formed, and upon which depend the validity of laws, the union of the States, and the peace, dignity, and happiness of the nation, should be a part of the education of every citizen, whatever his situation or occupation. Although several works have been written on this subject, by men of great learning and ability, which are highly useful to professional men, and those who have the leisure and disposition to engage in this important study; it is believed, that nothing has been attempted in the way of a short and simple exposition of the principles of the Constitution, for the use of young persons, and such as may not have time or inclination for a more extended research. With this impression, the following Treatise was undertaken, at the suggestion of a friend, whose situation led him particularly to notice the want of such a book, in the instruction of youth. In compiling it, the author has relied principally upon the Federalist; the Commentaries of Chancellor Kent; the Treatises of Mr. Rawle and Mr. Sergeant, and the Reports of the Decisions of the Supreme Court. The sentiments, and in some cases, the language of these books are used without marks of quotation, because the nature of this work did not require it; but they may be readily observed by the professional reader.The limits of the work would not permit an extensive discussion of the questions which have arisen, as to the construction of various parts of the Constitution.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
