Description: [two sheets]


No copy known extant; payment to Dixon for printing 1500 copies this title was authorized in November 1787; Swem recorded this imprint from that journal entry, as was his practice. Evidently this bill was under consideration in the October 1786 session and final enactment was deferred until the following Assembly in order to ascertain the public's opinion of the plan for a new form of jurisprudence separate from the county-court magistrates; bill was passed on January 2, 1788 as "An act establishing District Courts," reprinted as Chap. XXXIX in the Acts of October 1787 in Hening's Statutes (XII: 532-558).
