PREFACE

THIS volume brings us to the close of the American

Revolution, and we now are introduced to the difficulties which faced our public men in their efforts to satisfy the demands made upon them by the sufferers in the war, and to preserve public order, a task which appalled some of our best statesmen and excited the cynical curiosity of foreign nations, who ridiculed the idea of ignorant farmers, fishermen and day laborers setting up and maintaining anything like a stable government. We have seen the result, an enduring monument to the cause of Popular Government.

JAMES PHINNEY BAXTER.
