NOTE TO THE FIRST EDITION OF THE DEBATES.

[The following Note was appended to the first edition of the Debates.]

*** The Printers who took the minutes of the preceding Debates, are conscious that there are some inaccuracies, and many omissions made in them. It could not be otherwise, 'as they were inexperienced in the business, and had not a very eligible situation to hear in the Convention. But this they can say, that through the whole of them, they have had a sacred regard to justice and impartiality; and therefore they are emboldened to hope for the candor and pardon of the gentlemen in whose observations they occur, (from whom they have not been able to obtain corrections,) and of the public in general.

CORRECTION.—The note on page 60 is erroneous in stating that the meetinghouse where the sessions of the Convention were held, is the building still standing. The present building, however, stands on the same site as the former building, where the Convention sat.
