Fascinating

This is absolutely fascinating; I'd never read it before. I find it particularly interesting that Tyler focuses so much on the idea of "confederation," in marked contrast to the assumption of union we (tend to) have today. I also think it's revealing that Tyler focuses so much on procedures arising from his assumption of office, which of course was a unique circumstance at that time. Great stuff.
