Editorial Note

13 May 1783. In a letter of 20 May to Edmund Randolph (q.v.), JM mentioned a “letter from the Delegation by the last post to the Govr.,” asking him to inform the General Assembly of the expected negotiations “for a Treaty of Commerce” with Great Britain and of the delegates’ wish to know “the final sense of the State” on that subject. Governor Harrison referred the letter to the House of Delegates on 22 May (JHDV description begins (1828 ed.). Journal of the House of Delegates of Virginia, Anno Domini, 1776 (Richmond, 1828). description ends , May 1783, pp. 16, 17). See also Instruction to Delegates, 23–24 May 1783.
