I love your book and use it constantly in my PhD studies. I only wanted to suggest a possible correction on page 28 of ISBN: 978-1-932225-63 (Paperback Edition). Here it states: "As President Thomas Jefferson admonished Supreme Court Justice William Johnson:" However, the letter in reference was written in 1823, when James Monroe was President.

Thank you so much for reviewing Original Intent and for your helpful comments. We really appreciate you taking the time to send this in!
We called Thomas Jefferson "President" as a courtesy, just as we continue to call George W. Bush "President Bush" or Barack Obama "President Obama" even though both are out of office. Also, Jefferson appointed William Johnson to the Supreme Court so he was comfortable writing Johnson even after his term in office.
Again, thank you for your comment! We strive for accuracy so appreciate any comments or suggestions to ensure we're maintaining that high standard.
