NOTES.

Page 8. For a discussion of the different forms of government in the colonies, for "a sketch of their charters, constitutional history, and ante-revolutionary jurisprudence," see Story's Commentaries on the Constitution, pp. 3-83, especially pp. 67et seq.

For a recent and very useful treatment of this subject, consult Hinsdale's The American Government, ch. ii., "How the Colonies were Governed," pp. 36-51.

Page 25. On the system of entails in Virginia, consult Jefferson 's Autobiography, Writings, vol. i. See also Randall's Life of Jefferson and Rives's Life of Madison.

Page 27, line 9. For Burke's famous passage on this subject see his Speech on Conciliation with America. Works, vol. i. pp. 181, 182, Payne's edition.

Page 28: For Patrick Henry's agency in the "Parson's Cause," see Fiske's American Revolution, vol. i. p. 18; Tyler's Life of Henry, ch. iv.; Writings of Henry, edited by William Wirt Henry . Mahon's History of England (vol. v. pp. 89-91) has an interesting passage on the character of Henry, apparently based on Wirt's Life of Henry.

Page 40. For farther discussion of the relation of the colonies to the Crown and to Parliament, the allegiance and rights of the colonies, and the prerogatives of the Crown and the authority of Parliament, see Story, Commentaries on the Constitittion, ch. xvii., on "General Review of the Colonies "; Chamberlain, The Revolulion Impending, in Winsor's Narrative and Critical History, vol. vi.; Knox's Controversy between the Colonies and the Mother Country.

Page 42. Summarise the "chief restrictions of the commercial code." See the very valuable passage in Lecky's England in the Eighteenth Century, vol. ii. ch. v. pp. 8-12; also Lord Miss Eleanor L. 's Industrial Experiments in the British Colonies of North America, Johns Hopkins University Studies, extra vol. xvii.

Consider the Navigation Acts in this connection.
