1798.059: Petition opposing Move of District Court to Centerville.

Published: 1798

Full Title: To the General Assembly of Virginia: the petition of the subscribers, inhabitants of the counties of Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William & Fauquier ...

Author: Inhabitants of Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William, and Fauquier Counties.

Place Issued: Alexandria

Issuing Press: Uncertain

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


Petitioners oppose a suggested move of the District Court from Dumfries to Centerville. Sheet lacks printer credit; the only recorded copy held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia is dated at end in manuscript "Dec. 16, 1798" by a clerk of the House of Delegates, indicating date of submission, and so of production; residence of the petitioners indicates that this broadside probably issued from one of the two Alexandria presses that were then in operation, but without other evidence such an attribution is purely speculative..
