In the link https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript, it is written
We hold these truths to be self-evident , that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
To catch your attention, I made the first comma between "self-evident" and "that all men.." bold and would like to ask a question about it.
There is surely a list here consisting of "that-relative clauses(defining)" in a row and that's why there are commas. However, I can't understand why the first comma exists. Putting the first comma there means "to be self-evident" is the first item of the list, however, I'm pretty unsure if we can create a list consisting of both relative clauses and infinitive clauses.
I don't think that "to be self-evident" can be the first unit of the list because it is not something with the same type as relative clauses. If it can, well we should be able to change the place of "to be self-evident" and put it there as the third or fourth element of that list, which probably doesn't make sense and is ungrammatical.
Therefore, I suggest removing the first comma.
What do you think?
