* Alexander Martin was elected Speaker of the Senate. Sherwood Haywood was appointed Clerk. Montford Stokes was appointed Assistant.
(1) John Johnston is not named in the Senate Journal. His name comes from Wheeler's "1874 North Carolina Manual," and therefore replicated in the 1913 NC Manual.
(2) On November 11th, the Senate determined that Hardy Holmes was not eligible for his seat in the Senate because he had not yet accounted for monies he received as County Collector of the Public Tax in 1787, and they ordered a new election to be held. This was done and Hardy Holmes was again elected to the Senate, and he retook his seat on November 29th.
