On Jan. 20, 1851, R. H. Gallaher appointed to publish the debates and proceedings in full as supplements of the regular issues of the Richmond newspapers, and to print in book form a Register of the debates and proceedings. Only one volume covering Jan. 6-March 7, 1851, was printed, because the members were slow in returning the revised and corrected manuscript of their speeches, and because a misunderstanding arose in reagrd to the payment for printing. cf. Swem, Bibl. of Va., pt. II, no 13552.
