The differences between the two editions are the following:

1. The matter from pages 1 to 8, inclusive, is new in the present edition. The substance of the preliminary remarks in the old copies has been transferred to the notes, in order to make room for a table of contents.

2. A more complete appendix is added in the place of the old appendix, and the opportunity has been taken to correct in this appendix misprints and errors in the text, and to supply omissions and deficiencies. The mistakes and errors on pages 9 to 16, inclusive, are corrected in this reprint, and are not noted in the appendix.

3. Historical notes have been added, which it is hoped may be found useful. The compiler is permitted to say that they have had the benefit of the revision of Mr. Caleb Cushing, and of Mr. William Hunter, the Second Assistant Secretary of State.

4. A copious analytical index has been added, on which some labor has been spent to secure accuracy. .

5. A synoptical index has been added, made from the marginal abstracts as printed on the treaties. In this index the opportunity has been taken to correct all known errors in the titles of the treaties in the text of the work, and to give, respecting each treaty, whenever possible, the dates—1, of its conclusion ; 2, of the action of the Senate upon it; 3, of its ratification by the President; 4, of the exchange of the ratifications ; 5, of the President's proclamation.

The compiler of the Notes and Index takes this opportunity to express his obligations to Mr. John H. Haswell, Chief of the Bureau of Archives and Indexes at the Department of State, for his care in verifying the numerous citations and references, (several thousand in all ;) and to Mr. Almon M. Clapp, Congressional Printer, and Mr. Henry T. Brian, Foreman of the Government Printing Office, for the great care in proof-reading which has secured what it is hoped may prove to be a great degree of accuracy.

J. C. BANCROFT DAVIS. DEPARTMENT OF STATE, September 1, 1873.
