The State of the Union: Being a Complete Documentary History of the Public Affairs of the United States, Foreign and Domestic, for the Year 1854 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The State of the Union: Being a Complete Documentary History of the Public Affairs of the United States, Foreign and Domestic, for the Year 1854
The annual message of the president and the reports of the departments contain matter of interest to every Amer ican citizen; valuable for immediate use and for future refer ence. With the documents annexed, they are too voluminous to appear in the newspapers, and only a few Of the most important are printed even in the leading political journals of the great cities. They thus r'each comparatively few Of the large number who are entitled to be made acquainted with their contents; and them in a form not convenient for preservation. To separate what is Of permanent interest in these documents from what is temporary and unimportant to arrange it and make it easy of reference in a volume which every one would be glad to possess and preserve - has seemed to the editor a work Of sufficient importance to justify the preparation of the volume now submitted to the public.
