I hope that the Volume will be found not inferior to any of its thirteen prede.
cessors in the essentials of accuracy, fulness, and impartiality, and that the whole
series, which extends back to 1860, will, as long as issued, maintain its standing
as a fair representation of the salient facts of politics with which it deals.

In distinguishing the politics of Senators and Representatives, the same rules
have been applied as in previous volumes, so that the responsibility of each party
for each vote can be readily fixed.
