Schofield, Henry. Essays on Constitutional Law and Equity and Other Subjects. Boston: The Chipman Law Publishing Company, 1921. Two volumes. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2001043982. ISBN 1-58477-223-9. Cloth. $195. * In the foreword, John H. Wigmore writes: "The essays here collected are a rich revelation of a genius at once critical and constructive in the highest degree... No modern writer in that field has excelled him-and only one or two have equaled him-in mastery of the entire complex of Federal decisions and in firm grasp of constitutional principles." And of Schofield's style Wigmore raves: "Once entered upon his text the reader is carried along irresistibly by the sheer pleasure of following the reasoning. No modern law writer has a style at once so personal and yet so entirely scientific." Foreword vi, vii. Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 402.

Strana 424 - As men, whose intentions require no concealment, generally employ the words which most directly and aptly express the ideas they intend to convey, the enlightened patriots who framed our constitution, and the people who adopted it, must be understood to have employed words in their natural sense, and to have intended what they have said.
Strana 153 - And the said records and judicial proceedings, authenticated as aforesaid, shall have such faith and credit given to them in every court within the United States as they have by law or usage in the courts of the State from whence the said records are or shall be taken.
