“contains the acts passed by the first, second, third, and fourth Congress. This edition published under an order of the Congress of the United States, has many peculiar advantages…”

 

This third volume includes laws such as making alterations to the United States flag, duties and taxes on foreign wines and teas, loan extensions approved for the federal government, as well as approval for giving states admission into the Union.

 

Evans also notes that this third volume contains the acts and laws of the 2nd session of the 4th Congress. And while the title page has imprint of 1796, this session did not occur until March of 1797.
