This volume has been prepared under chapter 104 of the Resolves of 1889, and contains all the Acts and Resolves, including the Tax Acts, passed by the General Court of Massachusetts during the political years of 1780 and 1781.
The numbering of the Acts according to each political year, as hitherto adopted, and as printed in the edition of General Laws published in 1823 by Asahel * Stearns and Lemuel Shaw, Commissioners, has been
followed; and, in addition, at the head of each chap; ter, is given the session at which it passed, with its
session number as printed in the original edition. At the end of each Act is the date of its approval.
The Resolves are numbered according to sessions, as in the original edition, no other numbering ever having been hitherto adopted.
A copious index has been added, which will afford ready access to the contents of the volume.
