Assembly was in session from November 1 to December 19, 1753. This journal was evidently assembled from the day-to-day reports and published before year-end; the printed session laws were not issued until January 1754. The replies to the unpublished opening address of the resident (lieutenant) governor, Robert Dinwiddie (1693-1770) by the Council (1753.006) and the House of Burgesses (1753.007) were published separately and then included as pgs. 1-2 and 3-4 in the journal proper.
