Excerpt from Reports of the Proceedings and Debates of the Convention of 1821, Assembled for the Purpose of Amending the Constitution of the State of New-York: Containing All the Official Documents, Relating to the Subject, and Other Valuable Matter
To those who look upon the Convention and the events connected with it, as ordinary occurrences, and who do not reﬂect on the nature and extent of this revolution, and its remote bearing on the future character and history of the state, a volume of seven hundred pages may appear disproportionate to the subject to which it relates. But the compilers are among those who be lieve, that the last year Will form a memorable period in the annals of the state; and that events which may now seem unimportant, from our familiari ty With them, Will hereafter assume a different character, and be sought for With avidity. Circumstantial records which now pass unheeded, may in time become valuable to the Jurist, in deciding upon the construction of the constitution; to the historian, in delineating the character of the age; or at least to the antiquary, by enriching his library, Without the labour of searching for documents, scattered amidst the rubbish and ruins of years.
