A nother edition of this work having been called for, the author takes the opportunity of expressing his satisfaction with the manner in which his humble performance has been received. He has been much nattered by the favourable notice, of Chief Justice Marshall, Judge Story, Chancellor Kent, and other distinguished jurists, who have done him the honour to communicate to him their approbation of the plan of the work, and the manner of its execution ;and express their opinion that it is well calculated for the attainment of the object for which it was intended. He begs leave to tender them his thanks for their kindness ;and having, in the present edition, corrected the only error of construction which has been pointed out to him, he hopes the work is now worthy of confidence as a guide in the construction of our admirable Constitution. The error alluded to was on page 70, of the former edition ;where it was stated, that the power of Congress extends to lay out military and post-roads, through the several States, with their assent.
