"June 21, 1781. Read the third time and passed the House of Delegates." Assembly session began in Richmond on May 7th and was immediately adjourned until May 24th at Charlottesville as a result of approaching British military operations; adjourned again on June 4th until June 7th at Staunton, where it continued until June 23, 1781. John Dunlap and James Hayes were appointed as Virginia's public printers in November 1780, but several war-time incidents kept them from printing in Richmond until December 1781; they conducted some public business in Charlottesville during the government's western exile in the summer of 1781; this is one of those imprints.
