38 Newspaper Report of House of Assembly Proceedings on
10-12 January 1788
Monday the 7th inst. being the day appointed for the
meeting of the General Assembly of this state, several members
met at Dover, but a house was not formed till Thursday, when
they proceeded to business. The rest of the week was taken
up in debating the new election for the county of Sussex,

Packet, 22 January, which probably reprinted it from the no
longer extant Delaware Gazette of 16 January.
