Serving concurrently as Chairman of the Rules Committee, he secured adoption by the House of "Reed's Rules" (1890), which increased the Speaker's powers to expedite legislation favored by the majority party. When told of a lengthy debate in the Senate, Reed quipped, "Thank God the House of Representatives is not a deliberative body." Light brown spot (¾-inch diameter) touches "d" of "Reed". Binder holes at left of mounting sheet, which contains ink captions (unknown hand). Otherwise, fine condition.
