may be pertinent to add that the third and fourth chapters were also printed at the same time, though, by the failure of eyesight, the writer was prevented from proceeding with the publication as then intended, and the plan of the remaining portion was afterwards enlarged, in view of considering more fully the questions involved in the case of Dred Scott v.

CONTENTS.

[OBSERVATION.—The several chapters of this work, though numbered continu-
onsly, may be classified into three parts or divisions. First, The Elementary or Ab-
stract Portion, contained in the first and second chapters; Second, The Historical
Portion, contained in the third and following chapters, to the eleventh, inclusive; and
Third, The Practical Portion, contained in the remaining chapters of the work. A
corresponding arrangement into Books or Parts, such as is sometimes made in the
treatises, has not been adopted, from believing that such subdivisions practically di-
minish facility of reference, and that it will be sufficient to call the attention of the
reader to this essential feature in the composition.]
