Description: When arranging the Records of the Constitutional Convention, Max Farrand established a numerical sequence for documents relating to the committee of detail from I to IX. However, when the Historical Society of Pennsylvania digitized some of their Wilson papers, they did not conform to the sequence established by Farrand and retained by scholars such as William Ewald. Due to the complicated textual nature of this digital collection, it is necessary to break this "draft" of the constitution into its constituent parts as identified by Farrand and Ewald, while making clear the fact that it is digitized as an integrated whole.
