Quo Vadis?

Before DC could be incorporated, Congress had to work out the niggling details of where the Seat of Power would be, and how.  Then actually move there:

Ordered, That a message be sent to the Senate to inform them that this House, having completed the business before them, are now about to adjourn; and that the Clerk of this House do go with the said message.

The Clerk, accordingly, went with the said message: and, being returned,

Mr. Speaker adjourned the House until the third Monday in November next, to meet in the city of Washington, in the Territory of Columbia.

And that they did.

Damn gummy-mint! Why can't they jes' do thangs, 'ithawt writin' docee-mints a-sayin whut they gonna do! Git 'er dun! Git on w'it! That's the way they do it in tee-vee! Ever'thin' fixed in a hour!

Don't know why real life ain't like that. Seems simple enough....
