Broadside printed in two columns with Dunlap & Hayes colophon; sourcing indicates this was an official notice, sanctioned by Council of State, suggesting an impending peace settlement; however, imprint is not recorded in Swem or Hummel. Author is frequently given as George III himself, yet item is an edited version of his address, hence the absence of an attribution here. John Dunlap and James Hayes began work in Richmond in December 1781 as Virginia's public printers; they held the position until May 1786 with Hayes the sole resident proprietor.
