29 June - Representation in the House

by khazzard

Cite as: khazzard, ‘29 June - Representation in the House’ in Kieran Hazzard, Bilder and Doubts Over Madison's Notes, Quill Project at Pembroke College (Oxford, 2019), item 288.


There are five sheets covering sessions in late June and July within Madison’s Notes which Bilder believes to have been replaced. The primary evidence for which is that the paper used by Madison differs from that of the notes surrounding these pages, or on any other document created by Madison in the summer of 1787.

One of these sheets contains Madison’s speech on State societies and representation in the first branch of the legislature. Bilder suggests that it is therefore possible that this was added or edited after the fact.
