1526. CONGRESS, Credentials of Members.—

We have had hopes till to-day of receiving
an authentication of the next year's delegation [to the Continental Congress], but
are disappointed. I know not who should
have sent it,—the Governor, or President of
the convention; but certainly somebody
should have done it. What will be the consequence,
I know not. We cannot be admitted
to take our seat on any precedent, or
the spirit of any precedent yet set. According
to the standing rules, not only an authentic
copy will be required, but it must be
entered in the journals verbatim, that it May
there appear we have right to sit.—
To John Page. Ford ed., ii, 74.
(Pa., 1776)
