We present an excerpt (Part 3. The reborn Lithuania. 15. Sovereignty of a nation within the state constitution) from the manuscript Lietuvių tautos suverenumas; istoriniai-teisinė raida kovų už teisę ir laisvę (‘Lithuanian National Sovereignty: Historical and Legal Development of the Struggle for Rights and Freedom’) prepared in 1952 by the member of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Seimas of the First Republic of Lithuania the PhD doctor in law Pranas Viktoras Raulinaitis (1895–1969). The excerpt has an accompanying text briefly describing the history of the manuscript’s discovery and the author’s biography as well as outlining the potential value of the excerpt. We hope that the publication of this excerpt will trigger interest in the entire work preserved at Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., USA and accelerate the process of its publication not only in the Lithuanian but also in the English language.
