Messrs. Sanborn of Franklin and Briggs of Manchester were chosen a committee to escort the temporary presiding officer to the chair.

On assuming the chair, Mr. Kent addressed the Convention as follows:

There can no higher duty come to citizens of a state than to be charged by its people with examination and revision of its organic law—that instrument that has unified government and the elements of prosperity; that has voiced the stern integrity, reverence of Deity, and crowding energy that from feeble beginnings have developed a prosperous commonwealth.
