Author: Virginia. Convention of August 1774 (First Convention).

Place Issued: Williamsburg

Description: 1 sheet ([1] p.) 33 cm. x 19 cm. (broadside).


Considered today the "First Virginia Convention," the assembled delegates drafted a call for all Virginians to cease commercial dealings with merchants in Great Britain. Sheet lacks printer credit; typography consistent with that seen from press of Clementina Rind; Bristol attributed this title to Rind press as well. Author is sometimes reported as the Virginia General Assembly, but such had been dissolved by Governor Dunmore in May 1774.
