CONNECTICUT COURANT, EXTRA. JANUARY 6, 1815. THE PROCEEDINGS OF A CONVENTION OF DELEGATES FROM THE STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS, CONNECTICUT, AND RHODE-ISLAND; THE COUNTIES OF CHESHIRE AND GRAFTON IN THE STATE OF NEW- HAMPSHIRE; AND THE COUNTY OF WINDHAM, IN THE STATE OF VERMONT [caption title]
Hartford, 1815. [3]pp. Folio. Previously folded. Some wear and minor loss along old folds, with a few tissue repairs, slightly affecting text. Four-inch tear from upper fore-edge of second leaf. Light dust soiling and foxing. Good. Untrimmed. A rare report of the proceedings and resolutions of the Hartford Convention, together with a number of tables containing relevant statistical evidence, printed by a local Hartford newspaper, the CONNECTICUT COURANT. The Convention comprised a series of secret meetings held by New England Federalists in December 1814 to discuss their common grievances against the federal government, to demand several constitutional amenments to redress what they considered to be an imbalance of power among regions, and for some delegates to call for secession. As the convention formally ended on January 5, 1815, this supplement to the COURANT, published the following day on January 6, is undoubtedly the earliest printed account of the completed proceedings. Only one copy located by OCLC, at the Connecticut History Society.
