Mississippi:

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO WHOM WAS REFERRED A MEMORIAL OF A CONVENTION OF DELEGATES FROM FIFTEEN COUNTIES IN THE MISSISSIPPI TERRITORY, PRAYING THAT THE SAID TERRITORY MAY BE ADMITTED AS A STATE ENTIRE AND WITHOUT DIVISION...

[Washington: 1817] 7, [1 blank] pp. Dbd, Very Good. The Convention had sought admission as a single State rather than division in two. But the Territory is so vast, with so much uncultivated "wilderness," that the Committee worries whether "the whole Territory is capable of such a strong population as ever to render it a formidable State compared with the largest sized of the northern, middle, and western States." A chart is provided, with data on the quantity of land sold in Mississippi Territory from the opening of the land offices on September 30, 1816. FIRST EDITION. AI 42725 [2].
