1779.010: Act concerning Officers, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines.
Full Title: [Act concerning officers, soldiers, sailors and marines. Williamsburg]
Author: Virginia. General Assembly.
Place Issued: Williamsburg
Issuing Press: Dixon & Nicolson
No copy known; copies of this act were ordered printed for distribution by members of the General Assembly to their respective counties (Senate Journal, June 18, 1779). Alexander Purdie died in early April 1779, leaving much of his work for the public incomplete; the General Assembly of May 1779 decided to divide that session's printing between the two Williamsburg printing offices then in operation: that of Purdie's nephews & successors, John Clarkson and Augustine Davis, and that of John Dixon and Thomas Nicolson; the Council of State would also begin a search for a replacement for Purdie in Philadelphia who they hoped would start work in Richmond when the government moved there the following spring.
