Speaker Pro Tempore
Leadership Notes: On December 22, 1857, John S. Watrous, Speaker of the House, requested and was granted a leave of absence so he could attend to important business transactions. George Bradley was named Speaker Pro Tem that same day.
He was sworn in on December 3, 1857.
An 1858-59 session was not held due to the protracted session of 1857-58. (Minnesota Legislative Manual, 1872, p. 66) Thus, even though the first session was adjourned on August 12, 1858; the term end date for it is listed as the day before the second legislative session's start date.
