PREFACE

Even the frequency with which authorities are cited in the foot-notes, can but partially indicate my indebtedness to others. I desire here to acknowledge the most generous assistance. Although the portions of the dissertation relating to treaty-making in the United States and in France, had been prepared and presented before the Seminar at Columbia University prior to the appearance of The Treaty-Making Power of the United States, by Charles Henry Butler, and of Les Traités internationaux devant les Chambres, by Louis Michon, both have been of great service in the final revision. To Mr. Andrew H. Allen of the Department of State, for generous privileges given in the use of the manuscripts and publications deposited in the Bureau of Rolls and Library, and to my co-workers in the Department, for many courtesies extended, my thanks are especially due. To the members of the Faculty of Political Science in Columbia University, and more especially to Professor John Bassett Moore, at whose suggestion the work was undertaken, and whose advice throughout has been unceasing, I feel my chief indebtedness; and I take this occasion to express my high appreciation of the privilege of having enjoyed for a considerable period their counsel on the general principles of public law.
