by James Kent( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection comprised mostly of letters written by Kent that eloquently reflect his legal and political thought, which was regarded as quite conservative during the first quarter century of the new American republic. For example there are two letters addressed to James Hillhouse, (3 June 1830) concerning a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution on changing the presidential election procedures. In another letter addressed to Governor Daniel D. Tompkins (1 September 1813) he discusses the reasons why he believes the State of New York has no legal jurisdiction in matters concerning Indians on reservations. The case in question involved the state's apprehension of an Oneida for the murder of a fellow tribesman. Kent recommended the offender be released unconditionally. Another interesting letter was addressed to Citizen Genet, 7 July 1795 concerning a suit filed by Cornelius Read against Genet for the loss of a vessel due to the unskillfulness of the skipper. Other letters expose his strong Federalist views in opposition to policies of Jefferson, Madison, DeWitt Clinton, and Tompkins, then as a Whig in later years as exemplified by his disappointment with the defeat of Henry Clay in a letter to Ambrose Spencer, 14 April 1845. This collection also includes a draft of articles of a proposed New York State Constitution that relate to Kent's participation as a voting member at the New York State Constitutional Convention of 1821
