1792.012: Proclamation of June 7, 1792.

Published: 1792

Full Title: By the governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia: A Proclamation. Whereas the public interest demands that the General Assembly be convened before the time to which they stand adjourned; I have therefore thought proper, with the advice of the Council of State, to issue this my Proclamation, appointing the First Day of October next, for the meeting of the said General Assembly, at which time their attendance is required at the Capitol, in the city of Richmond. Given under my hand, as governor, and under the seal of the Commonwealth, at Richmond, the 7th day of June, 1792. Henry Lee.

Author: Lee, Henry (1756-1818), governor.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Augustine Davis

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 33 cm. x 21 cm. (broadside).


Originally set for March 31, 1792, this forthcoming session was rescheduled for November; here the governor moved up the convening date to October 1, 1792. Sheet lacks printer credit; as an official document, printing this decree was the responsibility of the public printer; Augustine Davis held that position from April 1791 to November 1799, so the attribution here.
