In response to public debate over calling a convention to revise the state's constitution, the Assembly passed an act at the end of their 1815-16 session requiring the Executive to have the proceedings of the Revolutionary Conventions of 1776 & 1776 reprinted and to have 500 copies of them distributed across the state. This item is the second title in that mandated series; these records were originally published by Alexander Purdie (1775.019); this reprint edition also contains the ordinances passed at this meeting [p. 29-54], which Purdie published separately (1775.020); the proceedings and ordinances of the December 1775 convention (1816.060, 1816.061) continue the pagination of this title, so they likely issued at the same time, though they are complete productions in themselves with distinct title pages; as Shaw & Shoemaker recorded each part separately, so too does this Index. This series was issued after May 1816 when firm of Ritchie, Trueheart, and DuVal began.
