Author: Virginia. General Assembly.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Thomas Nicolson

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 20 cm. by 16 cm. (broadside).


Sheet lacks printer credit; essentially a circular to the county courts; signed in print "Agreed to by the Senate, H. Brooke, C.S." while House clerk, Charles Hay, signed in manuscript; that difference indicates that this item was a Senate document rather than a House one, so the responsibility of Thomas Nicolson, printer to the Senate; hence the attribution here.
