Author: Inhabitants of Amherst, Campbell, and Bedford Counties.

Place Issued: Virginia

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.; (broadside).


Dated at end in manuscript "Dec. 15, 1798" by a clerk of the House of Delegates, indicating date of submission. Sheet lacks printer credit; residence of the petitioners indicates that this broadside probably issued from the Lynchburg press of John Carter, but without other evidence such an attribution is purely speculative. Only copy known extant is held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia.
