The Assembly resolved on January 22, 1785, to have A. C. Hanson and Samuel Chase edit a collection of the laws of the
state since 1763 to form a companion volume to Bacon's Laws. Hanson did the work of editing and produced a volume which
compares favorably with Bacon's monumental work. One hundred copies were printed for the use of the state and an unde-
termined number for sale. See numbers 369 and 370 for subscription papers for this edition.

The committee of the House to prepare an address to the constituents, of which Robert Wright of Kent county was
chairman, delivered their final draft on January 16,1787, and it was ordered that ''the said address be signed by Mr. speaker,
and that 1800 copies thereof be immediately published, and 100 copies sent to each county, and that it be published in the
Maryland Gazette and Baltimore Journal." No copy of this edition has been located. A London edition was published for
John Stockdale in the same year with the statement that it was taken from a Baltimore imprint, perhaps the Maryland
Journal. The address was written because of a difference of opinion between the House and Senate over the proposed bill
for the emission of paper money. The Monthly Review, January 1788, pp. 66-67 contains a review of the book. On January
20, 1787, the Senate protested against this appeal to the people as conducive to violence and disorder.
