In form and in substance it emanates from them. Its powers are granted by them, and are to be exercised directly on them, and for their benefit.
Strana 99 - Miss., 1928-32; appointed to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Hon.
Strana 248 - The long existence of African slavery in this country gave us very distinct notions of what it was, and what were its necessary incidents. Compulsory service of the slave for the benefit of the master, restraint of his movements except by the master's will, disability to hold property, to make contracts, to have a standing in court, to be a witness against a white person, and such like burdens and incapacities were the inseparable incidents of the institution.
