The Papers of John Marshall, Volume X: Correspondence, Papers, and Selected Judicial Opinions, January 1824-April 1827 by Charles F. Hobson

This volume continues the acclaimed annotated edition of the papers of Chief Justice John Marshall, the great statesman and jurist. The constitutional nationalism of the Marshall Court reached its peak in 1824 with Gibbons v. Ogden, in which Marshall broadly expounded the commerce clause while striking down New York's steamboat monopoly laws. By 1827, however, a crack in the nationalist consensus revealed itself in Ogden v. Saunders, a contract clause case that elicited Marshall's first and only dissent on a question of constitutional law.

Marshall's active life outside the courtroom included work on two long-standing projects: revision of his Life of George Washington and preparation of an edition of Washington's correspondence. In his correspondence appearing in this volume, Marshall comments on such topics as the causes of the Revolution, the military history of the war, the social scene in Washington, the abolition of slavery, female education, and the novels of Jane Austen.
