D, CSmH. This document is a longhand copy, preserved in the Herndon manuscripts of the Lamon Papers, of what is apparently a contemporary newspaper report of a discussion in the legislature concerning apportionment. The discussion of the Senate resolution which took place in the House on January 7 (vide supra), as reported in the newspapers, does not seem to have included this speech. On January 9 further discussion took place, but newspaper reports are not available, the Sangamo Journal for January 12, the issue in which the report might be expected, not being extant.
 In 1835 the number of representatives was increased to ninety-one.
 William H. Bissell.
 Lyman Trumbull.
 The manuscript contains two further paragraphs reporting discussion by other members of the House.
