1788.032: Bill for Election of Congressional Representatives.

Published: 1788

Full Title: [Bill for the election of representatives, pursuant to the constitution of the government of the United States].

Author: Virginia. General Assembly. House of Delegates.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: Unrecorded


House ordered 500 copies printed, but no copy is now known extant. Swem attributes this title to the press of John Dixon, then the official public printer; but his office was beset with production delays, leading the General Assembly to divide the work required among the three existing Richmond presses, conducted by Dixon, Augustine Davis, and Thomas Nicolson, for this session and its three predecessors (Oct. 1786, Oct. 1787, June 1788). Absent supporting evidence, the specific press issuing this title cannot be determined.
