Description[Americana]. Acts and Laws, Made and Passed by the General Court of Assembly of the State of Connecticut, Holden at Hartford, in Said State, on the Second Thursday of May, Anno Dom. 1785. [New London: Green, 1785]. 12pp, [pp. 317-328]. Folio. Disbound. Light scattered foxing. Very good.
More Information: One of three issues, the others from New Have and Hartford (which Evans calls "the official issue"). The first Act illustrates the difficulties of living under the Articules of Confederation, which--among other weaknesses--had failed to grant Congress plenary power over foreign commerce. Connecticut passes, at the recommedation of Congress, an Act "to vest Congress with certain Powers for the Purpose of enabling them to secure to the Citizens of the United States receprocal Advantages in their Commerce with foreign Nations." Thus, in order for Congress to exercise such powers, delegation by the several States was necessary--but not until ten States so approved. other Acts authorize taxes and duties, amend a tax for repairing the Light-House near the Port of New London, and establish Middlesex County. Evans 18965. Bates 257.
