THE MYSTEKY OF THE PINCKKEY DRAUGHTCHAPTER Istatement of the caseWHEN I began the studies which have resulted in this book someone asked me what I was doing, and I chanced to answer that I was looking


into the mystery of Pinckney's draught of the Constitution. Afterwards I received a letter from Professor J. Franklin Jameson in which he spoke of the uncertainties attending the draught as ' * mysteries'' ' ; and later I found that Jared Sparks, back in 1831, had been engaged in the same study and had used the same term. With two such scholars as Professor Jameson and Mr. Sparks recognizing the knowable but unknown element which we call mystery, I retain the term which I chanced to use."A true mystery, instead of ending discussion, calls for rnore."
