arranged by depository. James Wilson's
notes (no. 264 A-C) have been divided
into three groups (see Note on Sources in
Volume II, 39-44).
(5) Forms of Ratification (no. 267 A-B).
Since many items which originated in Pennsylvania,
or were reprinted in Pennsylvania from other states,
had a regional or national circulation, those items
are printed in Commentaries on the Constitution: Public
and Private. We have therefore included an appendix
at the end of the supplement which lists all such items.
The documents are arranged chronologically except
for documents on particular subjects which are grouped
together. Examples of such groups are the following:
(1)  James M'Calmont's Appeal to the Supreme
Executive Council, 3 October 1787-16 February 1788
(no. 91);
(2) John Nicholson, A View of the Proposed
Constitution of the United States, 17 October-13 November
1787 (no. 141);
(3) Newspaper Reports of Convention Proceedings
and Debates, 20 November-15 December 1787 (no. 266).
