We take the liberty of requesting your acceptance of the accompanying Copy of the new edition of the "Federalist."
We have added to this Edition a copious analytical Index, and a Table of Contents—Our aim has not been to make a fine book, but to render what we consider a truly valuable Constitutional Classic, more easy of access to every American Citizen, & its important Contents more readily referred to. With our respectful wishes for your continued health and happiness—we remain Dear Sir Your obliged humble Servts.
