Session met from December 3, 1798 to January 26, 1799. Title page carries an imprint date of 1798, though it was necessarily issued after the session ended in January 1799; that error indicates that the press of Jones & Dixon, named public printers at the start of this Assembly, continued the practice of their predecessor, Augustine Davis, of compiling the official House journal from the typeset they employed to print the journal sheets that were issued daily during the session, about 200 in number; not knowing the ending date of the meeting, the title page reflects the date when its printing started.
