Enacted on November 23, 1786; passed in the House on November 9th. Sheet lacks printer credit; erroneously attributed to press of Dunlap & Hayes by both Evans and Swem; the firm of Dixon & Holt had been appointed as the public printer in June 1786, succeeding that of Dunlap & Hayes, who were dismissed on May 5, 1786, as a result of their perceived negligence (tardy production of Assembly records). Act is reprinted as Chap. VIII of the Acts of October 1786 in Hening's Statutes (XII: 256).
