This session met from December 2, 1799 to January 28, 1800. Title page carries an imprint date of 1799, though it was necessarily issued after the session ended in January 1800; that error indicates that the press of Meriwether Jones continued the practice of his predecessor, Augustine Davis, of compiling the official House journal from the typeset 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.
