The following ADDITIONAL NOTES have been received from the Author since the body of this work was printed off.


In page 20, after word arms, in line 5, read this note:

    This was the cafe under the laws of the state; but the Act of 2. Cong. c. 33. for establishing an uniform militia throughout the United States, seems to have excluded all but free white men from bearing arms in the militia.

To the words slave, page 47, line 14, add the following note:

    It may not be improper here to note, that the first congress of the United States, at their third session, Dec. 1793, passed an act to prohibit the carrying on the slave trade from the United States to any foreign place or country; the provisions of which seem well calculated to restrain the citizens of united America from embarking in so infamous a traffick.
