Excerpt from The Department of Commerce: July 1, 1913

The remarkable foresight of the great commodore enabled him to name the Cabinet very much as it is to-day, practically in the order in which it grew, agriculture being included by him in the Interior (home) Department, where it actually was for a time. The labor interests, however, which have grown rapidly in importance in recent decades, are now also provided for in a separate department.

When the Constitution had been ratified by eleven States, and the Congress, under its authority to regulate commerce with foreign nations and among the several States, proceeded solemnly to treat the commerce and manufactures Of the two remaining States in the same manner as those of any foreign country, it was from a sense Of their commercial interests that they hastened to enroll themselves with their sister Commonwealths, although one of these two States had not even participated in the convention.
