Documentary History of the First Federal Congress of the United States of America, March 4, 1789-March 3, 1791: v. 8: Petition Histories and Non-legislative Official Documents

Hardback
The petition histories in volume VIII throw light on the public's expectations of its new federal government and illustrate how the broad national concerns Americans brought before Congress in its first years of operation continue to resonate in the national political dialogue. The second part of this volume provides a wealth of new source materials on many issues of congressional protocol and procedures, such as rules, printing, staffing, a library for Congress, journal and record keeping, and other precedent-setting matters.
