Imprint lacks date and printer credit. Content comments on Jefferson's first annual message to Congress (December 8, 1801) and Albert Gallatin's first report on government revenue and expenses (December 21, 1801) in an argument addressed to an Assembly session that ended on February 2, 1802; so this title dates to January 1802. Perspective of commentary is pro-merchant and anti-administration, so issued from the Federalist press of either Henry Pace or Augustine Davis, but imprint itself does not indicate which press produced this item.
