Published: 1788

Full Title: Journal of the house of delegates of the commonwealth of Virginia; begun and holden in the city of Richmond, in the county of Henrico, on Monday, the twenty-third day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight.

Author: Virginia. General Assembly. House of Delegates.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: John Dixon

Description: Unrecorded [6 pages in manuscript]


Three day (June 28 to 30) special session of the legislature that was called immediately after the adjournment of the ratification convention. No copy now extant; Evans attributed this small title to the combined presses of John Dixon, Augustine Davis, and Thomas Nicolson, who had produced the substantial set of session laws enacted by the Assembly of October 1787; that combination resulted from production delays that plagued Dixon's office during Assembly sessions; yet, Dixon readily produced items required by the executive branch during the intervals between sessions; thus he had little problem in completing this very short house journal, as well as the one-page set of laws that accompanied this item in fulfilling his role as the public printer.
