It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by
men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot
be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they
be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such
incessane changes that no man who knows what the law is today can
guess what it will be tomorrow.
