Published: 1788

Full Title: A list of pensioners, for the year 1788. … J. Pendleton. Auditor's Office, December 10, 1788.

Author: Virginia. Auditor of Public Accounts.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 51 cm. x 39 cm. (broadside).


Text includes an extract from the law concerning pensioners and verifying their eligibility. Sheet lacks printer credit. Bristol attributes 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). Swem did not assign production credit, as supporting documentation is lacking; hence the specific press issuing this title cannot be determined.
