Circular to members of the General Assembly.
Knoxville 4th July 1796.
I have received information from the Honorable Messrs. Blount and Cocke; That Tennessee is by and act of Congress admitted as a member State of the Union.
By this act we are only entitled to the privilege of having one Representative; The Senate of the United States objected against our Senators taking seats within their body.
Matters being thus deranged, it becomes expedient and necessary, for the Assembly to be convened at an early day, in order to alter and regulate our present mode of election for Representatives, Electors of President and Vice President of the United States, reelect Senators and other business of Public utility.
Your punctual attendance at the seat of Government, on the last saturday in the present month will be expected.
I have the honor to be respectfully
Your most obedient humble servant
