Excerpt from Report From the Secretary of State, 1877: With Accompanying Papers, Relating to the Court of Commissioners of Alabama Claims
Some Of these cases I have reported, as they appear to be of interest, and have given what, in my Opinion, was the ruling of the court upon the questions of law arising in them.
The statements of the principles decided in these cases are my own, and for them I alone am responsible. They are reached after a careful comparison of the amounts claimed, the amounts awarded, and the decisions Of the court in other and Similar cases. I have little doubt that they are substantially correct; still they are in no Sense an Official expression Of the opinion of the court.
In a court organized as this has been, and required to determine so large a number of cases in a comparatively short time, duties have necessarily been imposed upon me which in courts generally do not fall upon the clerk.
If I have been successful in the performance of these duties, and in my efforts to facilitate the speedy disposal of the cases before the court, a large proportion Of the credit is due to my assistants.
