Description: Unrecorded


No copy known extant; Swem recorded title from an order to print it on December 11, 1798. A year-long assessment in 1798 of the practices of Augustine Davis as public printer led to his removal from office in December for failing to distribute an adequate number of public documents to satisfy the needs of western (largely Jeffersonian) counties; the Council of State replaced him on December 9th with one of their own, Meriwether Jones of Augusta County, who immediately engaged John Dixon Jr. as his print-trade-partner; the new firm of Jones & Dixon held the post until May 1799, so the attribution here.
