legislative history

Scholar Charles Warren's discovery of an earlier version of Sec. 34 which
referred to statute as well as judge made law is cited by Brandeis (bottom
p. 436- note 5) as shedding light on the actual meaning of Sec 34 being that
it would "apply as their rule of decision the law of the State unwritten as
well as written."
