Description

    [Connecticut]. Acts and Laws, Made and Passed by the General Court or Assembly of the State of Connecticut, Holden at Hartford, (In Said State) on the Second Thursday of May, Anno Domini, 1785. [New Haven: Green, 1785]. 12pp [pp. 317-328]. Folio. Disbound. Light scattered foxing. Very good.

    More Information: One of three issues, the others from New London and Hartford (with Evans calls "the official issue"). The First Act illustrates the difficulties of living under the Articles of Confederation, which--among other weknesses--had failed to grant Congress plenary power foreign commerce. Connecticut thus passes here an Act "to vest Congress with certain Powers for the Purpose of enabling them to secure to the Citizens of the United States reciprocal Advantages in their Commerce with foreign Nations." Other Acts authorize taxes and duties, amend a tax repairing the Light-House near the Port of New London, and establish Middlesex County. Evans 18966. Bates 258.
