Petition submitted to the Assembly session of November 1795 asking for a convention to revise the state's 1776 constitution, particularly in regard to representation. Sheet lacks printer credit; sole surviving known copy of title has the blank spaces competed in manuscript for Berkeley County, suggesting a Martinsburg origin; however, the possibility of an Alexandria or Winchester origin cannot be excluded; so the indeterminate attribution.
