This chapter discusses Robert Williams, another governor of the Natchez District. He is different from his predecessors because he held multiple offices, as the land commissioner of the western district and as the governor of the Natchez District. This special recognition also lay him open to a number of criticisms. Later on in the chapter the brief resurrection of the Federalists and the matters addressed by the General Assembly are discussed.

Keywords:   Robert Williams, governor, Natchez District, multiple offices, land commissioner, criticisms, Federalists, General Assembly
