Elliot’s Debates: Preface to the Second Edition
Elliot’s Debates: Volume 1
Preface to the Second Edition
Honored by the adoption of resolutions, in both Houses of Congress, directing these volumes of Debates to be furnished for the use of the senators and representatives, and gratified by an extensive demand, elsewhere, for this work, the Editor has been induced to publish a Second Edition, much enlarged and improved, not only by the insertion of additional illustrative matter, but also by a more extensive stock of Debates, which he hopes may confer greater value on his undertaking. The practice of the Constitution has likewise been brought down to the present time, in the form of “Opinions,” delivered during debate, in the twenty-fourth Congress.
