Joint Resolution in relation to certain Books in the Library.

WHEREAS there are now in the State Library of this State three volumes of the Minutes of the Council of this State, in manuscript, showing proceedings of said council from the year A. D. 1776 to the year 1792 inclusive ; and whereas said volumes contain much valuable information which should be preserved, and are of much value to the State, and age has already rendered much of the writing imperfect ; therefore

Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met, That a committee of two on the part of the Senate and three on the part of the House be appointed to have said volumes printed properly for the use of this State.

Adopted at Dover, April 1, 1885.
