I shall ask your attention to some observations, more desultory than I hoped to make them, on the subject of Chief Justice Marshall, and the constitutional law of his time.
If Marshall had been only what I suppose all the world ad mits he was, a great lawyer and a very great judge, his life, after all, might have had no greater historical significance, in the strict sense of the term, than the lives of many other illus trions Americans, who in their day and generation have served and adorned their country.
