Only extant copy in Library of Congress missing; not filmed by Early American Imprints series. Title here taken from the House journal text; Swem misidentifies day of week as Tuesday. Sheet lacks printer credit; the firm of Dixon & Holt was appointed as the public printer in June 1786, succeeding that of Dunlap & Hayes, who were dismissed on May 5, 1786, as a result of their perceived negligence (tardy production of Assembly records).
