Author: Virginia. Executive.
Place Issued: Virginia
Issuing Press: Uncertain
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 31 cm. x 19 cm. (broadside).
Sheet lacks printer credit; only recorded copy held by the Library Company of Philadelphia (acquired from the Michael Zinman Collection of Early American Imprints) has manuscript completions for a debt suit in the Fairfax County Court; so this is likely an Alexandria imprint, but the possibility that it issued from Richmond cannot be excluded. Form has the blank "179__," so indicating its production sometime in that decade, but the specific year cannot be determined; while bond here is dated in manuscript April 1800, the imprint is assigned to 1790 in this Index as a simple expedient.
