Ratification of the Constitution by the states. Microform supplement: Delaware
([1978])

Introduction,   p. iii

Introduction
The microform supplement is intended to provide a
fuller documentation of the history of the debate over the
Constitution in Delaware than is possible in the printed
volume. The supplement contains official documents, letters,
and newspaper items. Except for some photographic
reproductions, the documents consist mostly of literal
transcripts. Transcripts of documents edited according to
the editorial procedures outlined in Volume III have been
so marked. The documents are arranged chronologically
except for documents on particular subjects which are
grouped together.
The pages in the supplement are numbered consecutively
in the upper right hand corner. The document number for
each individual item is placed on the left of the first
page of the item, immediately preceding the heading.
Footnotes to the documents indicate the Delaware reprinting
of newspaper items and the sources of other printed material
and of the manuscripts.
Many items reprinted in Delaware newspapers were first
printed in other states. We have therefore included an
appendix at the end of the supplement which lists the
significant items reprinted in Delaware.
