Description

    Acts Passed at the Second Session of the Seventh Congress of the United States. [No printer/publisher stated]. [Washington, 1803].

    Octavo. [195]-316, iv, lxxxv, xxvi Index.

    Original gray wrappers. Edges untrimmed. Contents and covers foxed and toned but sound. Damp staining on several bottom corners. Contemporary owner's signature on the front cover. Torn portion of back strip at the foot of the spine. All things considered, a very good copy.

    The Second Session was attended by President Thomas Jefferson, Nathaniel Macon, Speaker of the House, Aaron Burr, Vice President of the United States and President of the Senate, and Stephen R. Bradley, President of the Senate pro tempore. One Act was passed to prevent the importation of certain persons into certain states, where, by laws thereof, their admission is prohibited, while another Act provided for the due execution of the laws of the United States within the State of Ohio; another made provisions for persons disabled by battle wounds during military service in the Revolutionary War. The book also includes text describing the English and French Convention between the French Republic and the United States Government and the Chickasaw nation of Indians, and the Treaty between the United States Government and Choctaw nation of Indians are included as well, among other documents describing government relations with other Indian tribes.
