Excerpt from The Writings of John Dickinson, Vol. 1: Political Writings, 1764-1774

Though Dickinson's writings were so popular in their day, but one collection of them has ever been made. This consisted of a selection, edited by Dickinson himself, and published in 1801, a re-issue of which was made in 1814.

In this was printed his Speech of 1764, the Regula tion Of the Colonies, the Stamp Act Congress Resoo lutions, the Address to Barbadoes, the Farmer's Letters, the Essay Of 1774, the Addresses and Petitions of the Congresses of 1774 and 1775, the Con gressional Address of I779, and the two series of the Let ters of Fabius. Thus more than two-thirds of his writ ings were omitted, and have remained unknown. Believing that Dickinson's position and in?uence have been slighted by this suppression, the editor began the preparation for a new edition of his writings over five years ago. After advancing some ways in the work, he learned of a similar labor being planned by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and only too gladly merged his individual attempt with theirs. He has endeavored to make the present collection contain all that is extant of Dickinson's writings, but has, unfortunately, not been able to obtain access to or copies of some of the Dickinson papers in the possession Of a descendant. Aside from this hiatus, other omissions probably occur. After a careful study of over two thousand issues of the newspapers printed in Pennsylvania between 1762 and 1777, the editor is con vinced, from his knowledge of Dickinson's style, that he was a constant writer for the press, and that a number Of the broadsides of the period were also written by him. But deeming his personal opinion on this matter insuffi cient evidence to warrant the inclusion of such articles and broadsides in this collection, the editor has omitted all that he could not in some other way verify. Fortunately most Of the pieces so omitted are of comparatively small moment and the editor believes that the present edition includes all that is essential and important of Dickinson's works. The first two volumes will contain his political writings, and a third will be devoted to his correspondence. The editor is under special obligations to Dr. Charles J.
