Acts passed at the Second Session of the Seventeenth Congress.
by United States Congress,
Government Printing Office,
108, 51pp. Printed wrappers, mostly unopened, some external soiling and damp stain, else very good. President James Monroe. The acts and resolutions passed by the United States Congress (both House and Senate) during the first decades of the nineteenth century include some of the defining actions of the founders of the country, but at least as interesting is the minutia of operating a government at a time when legislators were still making it up as they went along. Included in this volume are an act to provide for the purchase of ships to combat piracy in the Gulf of Mexico, a trade convention with France and two Indian treaties.
