Excerpt from A Digest of the Laws of the United States of America, From March 4th, 1789, to May 15th, 1820: Including Also the Constitution, and the Old Act of Confederation, and Excluding All Acts Relating to the District of Columbia, Acts Establishing or Discontinuing Post Roads, and Private Acts
The acts are classed under a greater variety of heads than in the preceding Digests, the arrangement, therefore, being new, was often a subject of perplexity; and I doubt not, might be much improved. I was also frequently in doubt as to the propriety of retaining or excluding partien lar acts, and have retained many that might perhaps as well have been omitted. Notes, to shew the constructions ado ted in the courts of the United States, composed a art 0 the original plan; I found however in the progress 0 the work, that a complete collection of such decisions would swell the book to an inconvenient size, and became convinced that a partial view of them would be of little value. In the latter part of the volume, they were for this reason entirely discontinued.
