Editor used Max Farrand's *Records* as a starting point for gathering documents pertaining to the Committee of Details. Also used William Ewald, "Committee of Detail Documents", The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 135, No. 3 (July 2011), pp. 239-365 and William Ewald, "The Committee of Detail" 28 CONST. COMMENT 197 (2012).

Retained titles given by Ewald to the documents identified by Farrand as Documents I-IX in his *Records* but did not retain the order of documents as such, for clarity. When the Historical Society of Pennsylvania digitized their manuscript copies of Wilson's papers, they chose to collate certain pages, such as parts I and II of Wilson's first draft of the Constitution, in an order incongruous with Farrand and Ewald's methodologies. Each collection item therefore features a link to the digitized primary source, with the corresponding page numbers in the explanation below.
