Description

Excerpt from Vermont State Papers; Being a Collection of Records and Documents, Connected With the Assumption and Establishment of Government by the People of Vermont: Together With the Journal of the Council of Safety, the First Constitution, the Early Journals of the General Assembly, and the Laws From the Year 1779 to 1786, Inclusive It will be seen by a reference to the act, in pursuance of which this pub lication was undertaken, that little more was originally contemplated, than to collect such records as should perpetuate a history of the Legisla tion of the State, down to the year 1787. In prosecuting the collection, however, and particularly, in the effort to recover that portion of the jour nal of the Council of safety which was unrecorded in any publick oflice, a great number of valuable historical papers were discovered, connected vi ith a period, anterior to the formation of a regular government, and com mancing previous to the existence of any kind of political organization in the State. Ou examining these papers, it was found that they were sus ceptible of an arrangement which would exhibit a connected view of the principal events which form the early history of Vermont. They commence with the controversy between the Governors of New. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
