From HoN. JAMEs A. GARFIELD, President of the United States.
It is a very able discussion of what is to me one of the most important branches of political philosophy. . Every page I have read surprises me with the extent and thoroughness of the author's study, and the freshness and vigor of his discussion.
From HoN. WAYNE MacWEAGH, Attorney General of the United States.
It is so complete in its argument, moves so steadily to its own high end, and is so novel in American literature, for its wealth of political knowledge.
From HoN. CHARLEs SUMNER.
I have read “The Nation" from the first to the last with constant interest and sympathy. It is a most important contribution to our political literature, and cannot fail to strengthen and elevate our national life.
In a letter to Dr. Francis Lieber, Mr. Sumner said: “If you write to Mr. Mul. ford let him know that I am one of his pupils.”
From James B. ANGELL, President of the University of Michigan, and recently Minister to China. It is the most valuable contribution to political philosophy which has been writ: ten in the English language in this generation. Its hearty secognition of the moral element in the national life carries us back to the good old times of Hooker and Milton. From J. L. DiMAN, late Professor of History in Brown University.
Mr. Mulford's “The Nation" is not only by far the most profound and exhaustive study in the field of speculative politics that American scholarship has yet produced, but we shall be . to go very far back in the literary annais of our mother country to find anything worthy of comparison with it.
From F. D. Maurice, late Professor of Moral Philosophy, Cambridge University, A zigland.
The bracing effect of your late contest for freedom is manifest in its protest against commercial theories and pale abstractions which are wearing at the life of England.
