Documentary History of the First Federal Congress of the United States of America, March 4, 1789-March 3, 1791, Volume 17

Correspondence: First Session, September - November 1789

Endorsements

A monument of careful yet easily usable scholarship. The formal legislative record always needs to be supplemented by the evidence of personal correspondence. This correspondence is in its own important way a memorial to a crucial moment in the translation of the constitution from founding text into functioning document, because it helped to establish the links necessary to maintain loyalty to the new government. The completion of the DHFFC will fill in one of the most exciting and momentous chapters in American political history.

- Jack Rakove, Stanford University

One of the most imaginative and valuable editorial projects ever undertaken for any aspect of American history.

- John M. Murrin, Princeton University

A wealth of materials. For the first time, a significant part of the early history of Congress will be made accessible to legal scholars, a fact that I believe will significantly inform their discourse.

- Christine Desan, Harvard University Law School

Review

This complete and well-edited record of the First Federal Congress is a model documentary edition. Historians of the early republic owe thanks to the editors and publisher of this exemplary collection.
