Evidently the cover letter summarizing the digest previously published in conformance with the February 1816 resolution (1816.046), dated December 4, 1816. No copy known extant; Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on December 6, 1816, to print 250 copies of this report for the use of the Assembly, so the attribution here to the partnership then conducting Ritchie's press.
