* Admitted into the Union after the apportionment under which they are here arranged was made, but before the succeeding census.

The whole of the thirteen original States were settled in the period of 125 years, which intervened between the landing at Jamestown,
Va., in 1607, and the arrival of Oglethorpe in Georgia in 1733. Meanwhile, Henry Hudson had come to New York (1609); the Mayflower's colony
had landed in Massachusetts 11620]; John Mason had received a grant of New Hampshire in the same year; a patent had issued for Connecticut
[1631] ; religious differences in Massachusetts had sent settlers to Rhode Island; a title to Maryland läd vested in Lord Baltimore (1632) ; a ces-
sion of Delaware was obtained from the Indians (1640); the Carolinas had passed into tbe possession of Clarendon and others, were settled in
1667 or 1668, and divided in two in 1729 ; and New Jersey had been patented in 1664. During the Revolution and afterwards, Congress held its
sessions in Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, Lancaster. York, Princeton, Annapolis, and Trenton. Having been interrupted at Philadelphia,
the sessions were removed to the halls of the college at Princeton. In 1784 commissioners were appointed to procure a site for the capital, be-
tween two or three miles square, upon the Delaware River, and erect suitable buildings, but nothing was done by them. In 1789 a bill passed
one house of Congress in favor of a location upon the banks of the Susquehanna. The present seat of Government District of Columbia] was
selected by virtue of acts passed in 1788-'89 by Virginia and Maryland ceding ten miles square upon the Potomac, under the name of Connogo-
cheague. The first session of Congress was held in the District November, 1800.
